Location Details

Seeing the style of the construction, it may be assumed that there might have been the rule of Mughals here. Katra was used to keep a watch on the activities around the twin fort of Ankai–Tankai. It was used for the protection of the forts.
User Experience

There are not much forts in this region and so the number of people visiting Katra is also less. Due to less rainfall, the farmlands around are not so prosperous. Katra is to the East of Ankai fort. The way to the base village, Katarwadi is quite difficult to find. One has to have a complete idea of the route. The surroundings of the village are very pleasing. The pathway is very slippery but the climb is quite easy. It takes half an hour to reach the fort top. The vegetation is very sparse and one has to search for the trees to rest in the shadows along the way. The entrance gateway of 6 feet width is in complete ruins. Apart from the water tanks and caves on the top, there are not much of historic remains to the fort here. The caves carved out of the rock are big enough and were used to store the grains or even the army troops. To the East are the fort of Gorakhgad and the twin fort of Ankai–Tankai. To the North is the Mesna fort. To the North-East is the Hedbi ki Shendi pinnacle standing tall.
