Fort Govindgarh, was known as “The Hell “ amongst the 1200 Boer Prisoners of War held there. A thick wall varying in height between 21-28 ft enclosed the fort. According to Pieter Kolver it was a multi-walled fort. Entry to the fort was gained through the portcullis, which was later replaced by a heavy iron gate. The POWs sometimes swam in the moat surrounding the fort. The fort itself was in fact much smaller than the one at Ahmednagar.
