Uperkot Fort (Junagarh)

Uperkot Fort (Junagarh)

UPERKOT FORT, UPERKOT FORT historical, UPERKOT FORT travel, UPERKOT FORT tourism, UPERKOT FORT Historical PlaceUperkot Fort is believed to have been constructed by the Yadavas (the clan to which Krishna belonged) when they came to settle in Dwarka. Famous in bygone times for its virtual inaccessibility, the Uperkot or upper fort is girdled by a wall that is, in some places, over 20m. high. An ornate entrance gateway leads to the ruins.

Although extensively renovated and extended many times during the course of its long chequered past, its antiquarian outlook remains intact to this day.
