The fortress AchalGarh is bounded by huge barricade walls.

Inside of Achalgarh Fort there are many temples. These temples are well recognized for their striking sculptures. The Achleshwar temple is famous for containing a Nandi which is said to be made of 5 metals, fold, silver, copper, brass and zinc. It is believed that the Achleshwar temple was built in the 9th century and legend has it that it was built around a toe print of Lord Shiva.

In natural light, this stone looks opaque, but if you place a candle behind the idols they take on a beautiful crystal-like sparkle, the stone is called the crystal stone or sfatik in Hindi.
