About Bhadra Fort

Bhadra Fort was built by Ahmad Shah 1 in the year 1411 AD during the Maratha rule. It is Ahmedabad’s historic cultural center, with its massive gates, palaces, and mosques. The fort complex includes lush green gardens, a beautiful palace, a temple renowned for its spirituality and the famous Teen Darwaza. Most part of the fort has been built with deep red colored stones. The palace inside the fort has ornate arches and heavily embellished balconies, a testament to the brilliance of Mughal architecture. The Bhadrakali Temple within the fort is dedicated to the Hindu Goddess Bhadra, also known as an alternate form of Goddess Kali. According to popular legend, Goddess Lakshmi herself once appeared at the fort and blessed the ruling Sultan with a city that would always be prosperous. The fort has served many different purposes through history – it has been conquered by the British in 1817 and served as a jail. Currently, it is being used as a Government office.
