About Narnala Fort

Narnala Fort is situated atop a hill of the Satpuda Mountain Range, which is 18 km north of Taluka Akot in Akola district of Maharashtra. This mighty fort derives its name from the Rajput ruler, Narnal Singh or Narnal Swami after which it is named. The fort was first established in 10 A.D. by the Gond kings and then built by Sultan Mahmud Gazhnavi. Later, Akbar invaded Berar (present day Amaravati) maintained by the Mughals. The Mughals recreated this fort with beautiful Mughal architecture and also built a mosque inside it. Hire a local guide who will tell you to which all hands the fate of the Fort feel until it was taken over by the British in 1803 CE. The fort covers an area of 362 acres and stands 973 meters above sea level. What is interesting to note about the fort is that it houses 2 smaller ones inside it. These are named as Zafarabad Fort (to the east) and Teliagarh Fort(to the west) with Narnala in the center. Forts within a fort, now that’s something unique. Apart from this, the fort has 360 watchtowers, 6 large and 21 small gates, a 9-yard long canon and 2 smaller ones.
