There are quite a few shrines and a mosque along with a fort here that are worth visiting and the river view is out of the world.

There are no guides available here so if you really want to get to know this place, make sure to shell out a couple of hundreds to camp here and interact with the locals, it’ll be worth it.  The architecture and its historic importance are a treat for all you History buffs. Be extremely careful if you decide to climb up a few rocks, you never know which one is a loose one. For a pleasant trip, avoid going in the summers, it’ll be enervating.
