Further down stands the Andheri Darwaza. Beyond this gate the path leads to the Darsani Darwaza, which is flanked by weathered statues of the River Goddesses Ganga and Yamuna giving access to a courtyard, along the south side of which stood the shrines Lakshmi-Narayana Sitala and Ambika Devi. In between these shrines is a passage that leads up to the palace. It looks very beautiful from the road during journey. In fact, it is one of the most beautiful forts in India.
The fort is at the beginning of Kangra town. It stands on a steep rock in Purana Kangra (translates to Old Kangra) dominating the surrounding valley, built strategically at the "sangam" confluence (places where two rivers meet) of Banganga and Majhi rivers.
