Akrand fort in Soon Valley was built by the men of Raja Tataar Khan in order to defend the areas of Soon and Pakhar. The fort is covered with thick and dense forest. Only one way leads to the fort which is along the way to Kanhatti garden. The fort had stables for horses, residential houses and weapon stores which have now turned into ruins. There is also a grave on the way to the fort which is supposed to be of Raja Tataar’s. The fort is thought to be of immense historical as well as architectural value for the archaeologists, not to mention the marvellous scenery it holds within itself. We tried to capture the ruins from every angle but they could not be captured the same on the cam. So, anyone who has an interest in history must visit this place himself/herself. A guide is must to visit this place.
