Traditional castles are built in the towns but this castle is an exception. It is been built at a remote site which was not easily accessible in ancient times. As it was built at a remote site so it required extra measures of security and these measures were achieved through supreme manifestation of the architecture. It is protected with high walls and one can appreciate the efforts of the builders who have increased the solidity of walls many times than others.
