Kamru Fort

Located at a height of around 2600m above the mean sea level Kamru Fort is a historic tourist attraction around 2 km from beautiful Sangla Valley. Set in front of a scenic background, the fort exudes stunning views of magnificent Himalaya. The fort can be accessed crossing a series of gates. At the main gate a blissful statue of Lord Buddha blesses the visitors. The fort encloses a 15th century shrine of Lord Badrinath. The wooden balcony of the fort serves as an ideal spot to witness the grandeur of Himalayan landscape. On the third floor of the fort, there is an idol of Goddess Kamakhya which was believed to be brought from Guwahati, Assam. A famous fair dedicated to the deity is arranged once in three years. During this fair the deity of the temple is taken to Gangotri, the origin of river Ganga.
