In 1511 AD Khalilkhan won Baroda and constructed fort wall-‘Killa-E-Doltabad’. At that time Baroda was an important place for the ‘Laskari Chavni’ between Chapaner (Pavaghad) to Ahmedabad. The city wall, extended for 4 km in length having 43 bastions and four gates. Presently, it stands as fragments only 500 m of the wall with 4 bastions and 4 gates.
