and with the dargah of Pir Kamalshah form the Sufi heritage of the place. Mr. Usman Notiyar who resides in the fort is  a guide and is well- versed with the history of the Fort. Everyone knows him and he can be easily reached.

The National Bird is present in large numbers inside as well as outside Fort Lakhpat, that’s how they write it in Gujarati- Kot Lakhpat.

At a short few kilometres there is this distraction on the roadside. Two Mongooses. Veena says they were fighting. I have my reservations. I think they were up to something more serious. Please see the pictures and let us know.
