Naulakhi Kothar

Naulakhi Kothar is located on the edge of a cliff in the Pavagadh Hill of Panchmahals District, Gujarat. This imposing structure, which dates back to the Rajputs era, was rebuilt with nine domes in the Islamic period and has probably been served as a granary. The rough rocky façade of the building resembles as an outcrop of the cliff.

The building has been found mentioned in the 15th century Sanskrit play “Gangadasa-Pratapavilasa-Natakam” by Gangdhara.

Naulakhi Kothar is situated near the sacred Triveni Kund - the three holy tanks named Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati.
