Gonda Raja Fort (Chandrapur Fort)


Babji Ballalshah initiated the construction of Gonda Raja fort and completed by his successor Dhundya Ramshah during 16th century. When the Gond capital was shifted from Ballalpur to Chandrapur, the Ballal kings built an extensive land fort with high walls and bastions. The fort has strong walls of 15-20 foot high encompassing the city. The fort area is divided into Jatpura on north side, Vinba or Ghod-maidan on west side, Pathanpura on south side and Mahakali or Achaleshwar on east side. The fort has small four-five entrances.
