Kalinjar Fort Bundelkhand

"this fort was unparalleled in the whole of Hindustan for strength". - Nizamuddin 

"The fort of Kalinjar which was celebrated throughout the world for being as strong as the wall of Alexander was taken". - Hasan Nizami

 

The capital of Bundelkhand;
the medieval history wonder of chandels invites you!

Kalinjar occupies a place of pride not only in the history of Banda also in the history of India. Many decisive battles were fought for the possession of this strategically located fort in ancient, medieval and modern times, but military aspect alone does not exhaust the importance of Kalinjar. The place is also a symbol of cultural and religious glory. This panorama of Kalinjar is marked by the famous temple of ageless Neelkantha, the tallest 'Kala Bhairava' image and number of high class sculptures in and around, and artistic friezes strewn throughout the length and breadth of the site and ranging from the Gupta period of the time of Chadellas. Kalinjar can further boast the of a vast wealth of epigraphic material as also possibly of even pre-gupta structures and cultural assemblage embedded under the collapsed debris of the western escarpment of the mountain where the famous Neelkantha temple stands.
