Along with this, visitors can also find figures of men, women, children, kings, gods, goddesses and birds.Inside the fort, visitors can find Brij Maharaj temple, which is dedicated to Hindu Lord Krishna. The stunning black stone idol of the lord was brought from Rajasthan, during the reign of Raja Jagat Singh. At present the fort is in ruined state because of the massive earthquake that hit the region in April 1905 AD. Moreover, British also played a part in destroying some portions of the fort but visitors can still see the remaining portions of the fortress, which is worth a visit.
