At Dabhoi, all that remains from 11-12th CE fortifications is the four gateways of the old fort, called Vamavart fort. Built by the Solanki King Siddhraj Jaisingh I. Standing in four cardinal directions, these Carved Gates of Dabhoi not only tell us the extent of the ancient city but also give us the glimpse of the life from how and what is sculpted on the walls and the arches. Today, you have to either go around the city or through the crowded lanes to reach these gateways. We were there in Dabhoi on the day of Dussehra. And we’re able to see a very different festival celebration here.
