An ancient fort in Bharuch, India, is crumbling since no structural maintenance has been carried out for a long time.

The historical fort was constructed between 1094 and 1143 AD by Siddhraj Jaysinh and renovated by Bahadur Shah between 1526 and 1536.

One can read about its history from an inscription on a stone lying near Custom House Masjid written in Arabic and Nagri. Also, there are several references to this fort in Britishers’ historical accounts of the region.
