The entrance to the fortress begins with an official gate at the bottom of the hill where any ticketing is normally paid. Then, there's a walk up a grade that includes a dramatic a layrinth so designed for defensive purposes. During early trade days, camel caravans likely trod this route, so it's not impossibly steep. Finally, one reaches the impressive gates that have Hindu art and inscriptions blessing the Bhatti clan that built the citadel and still lives there.
