Apparently the place from which Itanagar derives its very name. Small brick fort, a little away from town. Problem with all these places is that they close down really early, and you are only able to catch a glimpse.

It's simply neature a hill top, some deserted part of fort. Worst part is people visited their write their name in the wall. They should be serious about preserving the history and culture. Else, nothing is there. Not worth.
