  • One of the most popular and famous place to visit. Excellent plan to build this awesome fort. Maximum rooms are underground. Officers are smart, handsome and extremely friendly. Certainly a great place to visit with family and friends.

  • It is not often that you get a chance to visit a fantastic place of military history which is still functional. There are Raj era buildings, museum and places underground. This will leave you awestruck. Great place to visit if you get a chance.

  • This is headquarter for indian army (east). This place also has its own army museum which has kept the memory of indian struggle for independence how much blood our soldiers and civilian has sacrificed for this nation.

  • A unique british period walled military garrison town. Must see. Seek security clearance at the entrance gates, identifying documents etc must.

  • Awesome place if u want to experience history and British Raj in India. The place is showcases tunnels and roadways of that time. Beautiful gardens surround the area. But civilians are not allowed to enter dis place.
