Why to visit Bhadra Fort
Bhadra Fort is a remarkable landmark that exemplifies the Indo-Saracenic architectural style. The majestic fort was built near the eastern banks of the Sabarmati River after the creation of the Muzaffarid dynasty. The fort is located in Ahmedabad's walled city region and is made of red stone.
Ahmed Shah, the founder of Ahmedabad, constructed the Bhadra Fort in 1411 AD, which was called after the nearby Bhadrakali temple. The fort is also known as Aark Fort since it covers an area of 43 acres. From 1411 to 1442, Ahmed Shah ruled the Gujarat Sultanate.
Legend has it that the Goddess of Wealth, Lakshmi, once visited the famed fort and blessed the Sultan with the promise that the city will always be affluent. The road beyond the Triple Gateway, also known as the Teen Darwaza, leads to Manek Chowk, a mercantile plaza. The royal palace, gorgeous Nagina Baugh, Maidan-Shah, and a royal Ahmed Shah's Mosque are all located on this spectacular city location.
Inscriptions depicting the fort's history can be found in the arches of the entry gate. The lattice work of the windows is a notable element of the fort. With its stunning red stone architecture and rich gardens, the imposing fort stands out. The view from the roof would be fantastic for visitors.
Nobody is allowed to throw waste here and there and if found doing so is penalized.
