On the drive from Shimla-Mataur national highway, one comes across the beautiful Kangra fort on the flat mountain range. The massive Kangra Fort is approximately 3 kilometer from the town and is also known as Nagarkot.
At the entrance, you can see a museum containing some valuable old photographs of the fort, some exquisite stone sculptures, carvings, idols and other artefacts.
The climb leads through seven gates; as you go up you can see some idols embossed in the walls of the fort; the ramparts open out to the fascinating valleys below. There are three richly carved temples in the vicinity– Lakshmi Narayan temple, the Ambika temple and a Jain temple of Adi Narayan. The charming view of gushing streams of Banganga and Manjhi rivers from the Fort make the climb worth it.
The historical significant Kangra Fort is 3 km from the Kangra town.
