Located just 20 km from Dharamsala and 3 km from Kangra, the Kangra Fort is a magnanimous structure built by the royal family of Kangra. The fort finds a mention in the war records of Alexander, around 4th century B.C. It is one of the largest and oldest forts in India. The main attraction inside the fort is the view of gushing streams of Banganga and Manjhi rivers. The fort is also known as Nagarkot and I had to climb through seven gates to reach the three temples located inside. Image Sources: Royal Kangra Museum
