I'm visiting lots of forts in the world. From that perspective, this is a unique fort to me. Looks intentionally built the structure along the rivers to protect themselves from enemies. Imagined the life of the days when prosperity was here. Enjoyed the view.

one more place in Ujjain with historical significance. Lately, it has turned out into a good picnic spot as well. It is generally a good family outing place during spring or autumn.
