Representative from Naidunia, . Even though only ruins and gardens remain in the royal fort built during the Mughal period on the banks of the Suryaputri Maa Tapti, it still remains a center of attraction for domestic and foreign tourists. It was spruced up and a lighting and sound system was installed by the Tourism Department about seven months ago.

Since then, the number of foreign tourists has doubled here. 153 foreign tourists arrived here in the financial year 2023-24. Earlier in 2022-23, only 62 foreign tourists had arrived. The maximum number of foreign tourists coming here were from 88 SAARC countries namely Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka etc.

Apart from the royal fort, these tourists also visited other historical and tourist places including the Black Taj Mahal, the tomb of Mumtaz. Historians and experts associated with the tourism sector believe that if access roads to tourist places in the district are constructed along with facilities such as drinking water, amenities, restaurants, etc., then this number can increase considerably.

The access roads to these historic places are poor

The tourist places in the district have the potential to attract tourists from all over the world. Shahi Fort, Black Taj Mahal, Ahukhana, Raja Rawatan’s Palace, Kundi Bhandara, Gurudwara, Dargah-e-Hakimi, Asirgarh Fort, Swaminarayan Temple, Jama Masjid etc. are the main places in the district.

The access roads to most of these places are in poor condition and in some places there are no access roads at all. Tourists cannot go there due to lack of basic facilities. Apart from this, lack of regular vehicle services and facilities also affects tourism. Very few people know about the light and sound system set up in the royal fort. A small initiative by the district administration and public representatives can put the district on the tourism map.
