Kamalgad (1375 mts)
The fort covers a flat area, 3-4 acres in size. It is surrounded by steep rock and can only be reached by perilously scaling this rock. Earlier, the approach was by an artificial tunnel, which started at the base of the rock and emerged on the top. Now In this tunnel One Ladder is installed removed.There are no buildings on the top nor walls of any kind or even a gateway, which is unusual for a fort in this area. Likely, its height and steep rock around it provided it with enough protection.
The only structure on the top is a well in sword shape sunk right through the rock, into the soil below which still has water. The hole is eighteen to twenty feet deep .There are 40 to 50 steps for descending into the well . Some reports indicate that this ‘hole’ might have been a quarry for red stone (geru) which is plentiful in this region.
