Gadhwa means fort. Rock inscriptions recovered from the Gadhwa Fort suggest that the place was a big city during Gupta Period and was known as Bhattagram. Out of three inscriptions recovered from here, one belongs to Skanda Gupta while two belong to Kumar Gupta of Gupta Period. Some renovation work of the fort has been done by ASI (Archaeological Survey of India). This is an ancient fort which consists of group of temple ruins & surrounded by rectangular walled enclosures, with water filled trenches around it for security reasons. One temple is located on the north-western side, while another one is in the south western corner. The temple does not have any idol but there are inscriptions & some figures inscribed on one of the pillars of this temple. At a little distance from the temple, two Bawali (water reservoirs) can be seen in dilapidated condition.
