This time for my adventure, me and a couple of my friends decided to take a trip into the past, ancient architectures to be precise and what better way to feed this craving with historic forts in India lingering with heritage. I was lucky enough to travel again and looking at the COVID-19 situation I had a doubt that there would be another lockdown so we decided to make the best of this trip. We decided to visit not 1, not 2 but a total of 7 forts near the Tricity, but on one condition that we’d not look at the pictures of these monuments before visiting them.
We were up early in the morning and ready to roll, our meeting point was Tricity Plaza and according to our trusty guide ‘’Google Maps’’ first fort was around 20 kms away from us and it was the Ramgarh Fort.
I was thrilled, excited and all but once we reached there, none of us were ready to see what had happened to the fort. It was turned into a luxurious hotel with a gigantic garden. Although, I was a bit disappointed as only the ancient thing about this place was the architecture but I was happy to know that it holds the record for the ‘Tallest Wooden Door’ in Limca book of records. Of course, we were not planning to stay so we moved on.
Next on we travelled to the second fort which was Raipur Rani Fort. Now that’s what I’d like to call ancient. This fort clearly represents a different era and lifestyle, old bricks laid in a fashion that’s extinct in the modern society. We spent some time here soaking in the ambience and then we carried on.
