First we ...

... the fort was a stronghold to attack from as well as a refuge from the constant wars that took place over this area with its oft disputed control of a major caravan route. The first gate with its cobbled path inclines upwards in a zig zag towards towards the second gate and the pattern is repeated till the fourth gate. There the gate opens into a giant courtyard and, here, it become clear that this is a "living" fort for over 3000 people and ...
