Akrand Cliff Fort

Akrand is a cliff fort located in  midway of Khabeki village and Khanati garden. I  saw this site in 2012, while travelling towards Khanati gardens. According to archaeologists this fort  is around 5 to 6 thousand years old. No exact history is available. I read Potsherds were collected from the site. On the top of the hill there is a wide-open field dotted with stone-built one-room rectangular compartments. Some graves were also found in Akrand. This site has not been inhabited since last many centuries. The geographical coordinated of the fort are 32° 39.462'N and 72° 15.777'E.
