Bhadra Fort Overview

Bhadra Fort is an imposing ancient fort located on the eastern banks of the Sabarmati River.  It was built by the founder of the city of Ahmedabad, Sultan Ahmad Shah I in 1411 AD. Over the years many rulers conquered the Fort and in 1817 the British defeated the ruling Marathas and took over the Fort.

They turned it into a prison during the entire British Rule in India. The Maratha rulers built a Bhadra Kali Temple in the Fort which in turn gave the Fort its name. The Fort lies on a sprawling ground of about 43 acres and it has an elegant palace, the Bhadra Kali Temple, the Nagina Baug, Teen Darwaza and Ahmad Shah’s mosque.

The Fort was mainly built using bright red colored stones and the palace within the Fort has ornate arches and intricate carvings. Today, the Fort is used for several Government offices.
