The magnificent Bharuch fort (Lallubhai Haveli), perched on a hilltop overlooks the Narmada river. This one-storeyed building was erected in 1791 A.D by an ex-Divan of the former Nawab of Broach named Lallubhai. Hence the fort is sometimes known as Lallubhai Haveli. There is a small ‘bungli’ (room) on the second floor that has arrangements for placing matchlock guns. The facade of the fort is designed with rich and lavish wood carvings. It also has underground passages.
Within the fort there is the Collector’s office, Civil Courts, the Old Dutch factory, a church, the Victoria Clock tower and other buildings. Around 3km from the fort there are some early Dutch tombs, overlooked by some Parsee Towers of Silence.
Bharuch Fort is the principal attraction of the City Of Bharuch. It was constructed in 1791 AD by Siddhraj Jaysinh, one of the famous rulers belonging to the Solanki dynasty. One can have an aerial view of the beautiful River Narmada after climbing the fort. The construction style of the fort is very unique as some of the spectacular wooden carvings here leave the visitors spellbound.
