Into the Fort

To make your way into the fort is quite a long walk, first along a gradual slope and then becoming more steep.

This archway was in the third ring of walls.  Note how there is a wall right behind the opening, so invaders would have rushed in and been impeded by the wall and vulnerable from defenders above.  The route actually takes a turn to the right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The elephant carving was to the left of the arch above.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just inside the gateway was this alcove, with a water storage pot set into it.  This would have been for guards defending the gate.
