The fort of Nagarkot stands as a mute witness to the ravages of conquerors from Mahmud of Ghazni to the Emperor of Jhangir and the disastrous earthquake of 1905.
One can enter the fort by a narrow passage leads up to the top of the Fort. It was defended by a number of gates named after its conquerors like Jahangir, Ranjit Singh and the British. At the top of the fort, there was a palace of the Katoch Kings. In the country yard, there are two temples. One is of Lakshmi Narain and other of Ambika Devi, the family goddess of the Katoch Kings. The Fort remains neglected during British Period but now the Archeological Survey of India maintains it. The fort remains an attraction around the years.

Kangra is well connected by the roads from all the major towns. The nearest Railway station is at Samela opposite the fort. The nearest airport Kangra is 9km from Kangra town.
