Bardari, Devgiri Fort

The 14th century Devgiri Fort is one of the most complex and intricate forts of India  There are various structures inside the fort that are worth attention. 



Bardari is an octagonal building at the summit in the Devgiri Fort. It has dome shaped roof and nicely carved windows. This can be reached only after climbing 200 to 400 steps.



When this fort was under the control of Mughal dynasty this place was home for Mughal Governor. 



The complete area around the fort can be seen from the top here.

Very nice setting. It must be quite a climb to reach the top. But the view is wonderful from up there. So it is worthwhile.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Raj
credo che valga proprio la pena di fare tutta questa salita, se poi il premio è questa veduta da togliere il fiato :)
Buona domenica :))
