Upleta:

Upleta:
(19 Kms from Dhoraji)http://mw2.google.com/mw-panoramio/photos/medium/23940141.jpg Upleta is a fortified town on the banks of river Moj. The high fort wall with huge bastions, gates and small 'ghats' and the skyline of the buildings, creates a picturesque composition. The Darbargadh (now a police station, is enclosed within a fortified campus. It is a three storeyed structure (partly ruined), integrating a huge fort bastion as a part of the building. It has a high plinth and a carved arcade of 5 foliated arches and a sloping wooden roof. The windows and 'jharokhas' overlook the river and provide beautiful vistas.
