About Fort

  • Base Village:
  • Dharur
  • How to Reach:
  • The best way is to approach from Beed. Its on Tuljapur-Beed highway. Bust since I was approaching from Nanded, I chose Parli Vaijnath- Ambajogai-Dharur road. Theres a left turn while going towards beed. One or two more turns will take you to outskirts of the village where the depleted structure can be easily identified. My Meter reading from Pune: 840 Kms
