The Islamic calendar 2018 - 2019 is based on the moon. Also known as the Hijri Calendar 1440 - 1441, it started after the hijrah of Muhammad to Madina. The beginning of each month is contingent on the visibility of the moon at the end of the previous month. Once the moon is sighted, the new month commences. Each month starts with a new lunar cycle. Hence, the Muslim Calendar gives only a tentative overview of the upcoming Islamic dates as the start of each month is subject to the sighting of the moon.

Visitors first ... the first Praharagoda and the trench after it. The elephant's pond (Haati Talab) on the east side of the fort is filled with water from this trench to protect the enemy from invasion by enemy forces. Crossing the trench is a second flowing wall, inside which is a fortress. The fort is built around the highest hill (horse hill). There is only one way to go up the hill. The other three sides have natural arrangements that make it impossible for communion to occur. Except for the north side Since the other three sides are hilly monolithic, no one can climb the hill from these three sides. To the north of the hill, there is a spacious stone staircase. The cone seen on the main entrance, built of stone, is 25 feet high It is known that the Hindu kings were the first to build this fort over the symbolism of Vishnu. The Rangini Mahal (Rangi Mahal), the residence of the Nawab at the bottom of the hill, is very impressive. The Rangini Mahal faces from both sides of the facade and surprises the visitors. On the top floor there is a spacious hall, two decorative rooms and six bathrooms. This is a testament to the architectural acumen of the time. But today in front of the Rangini Mahal Many of the large buildings are in complete ruins. While the adjacent kitchen ceiling collapses and the walls are painted, the portico built for the horse buggy used by the Nawab is still firmly in place.
