Bandhavgarh Fort :
The oldest fort in India, considered to be more than
2500 years. One-hour trek upto the fort is worth the effort. The charm of this
trek lies in discovering these monuments in the jungle, unspoiled and unexplored.
Some of the statues lie off the main path and so it is best to take a guide.
Apart from the avatars, well worth seeing are three small temples of around
the 12th century. These temples are deserted but the fort is still used as a
place of worship. Kabir Das, the celebrated 16th century saint, once lived and
preached here. The natural ramparts of the fort give breathtaking view of the
surrounding countryside. Vultures wheel around the precipice which also attracts
blue rock thrushes and crag martins.The fort still belongs to the Maharaja of
Rewa and permission is required to visit it. However permission is available
locally and no trip to Bandhavgarh is complete without making an effort to climb
up the fort. The staff of the resort carries your lunch while you are busy negotiating
the trek upto the fort. Supplement charged
