 Upon reaching the wall, it stretches 36 km long and is said to be the second-longest continuous wall in the world, after the Great Wall of China. The huge wall extends through the mountainous landscape and gives a wonderful view of the castle. A great place for some photography. The fort was one of the main bastions of hope for the region's rulers in times of danger. However, it was breached once during its lifetime. Some parts of the wall are so wide, that eight horses can cross.

 It consists of the famous Ganesh Temple which you can visit, and is considered one of the oldest temples. Moreover, there is a Shiva temple called the Nil Kant Mahadeva Temple, which was built in 1458 AD.
