Telbaila was a watch tower built to guard over the Sahwashni ghat near Pali. It consists of two rock walls, the left and the right clearly differentiated by the col. in between. There is a temple of local goddess at the base of the twin wall. There are lots of ancient man-made water tank & caves at the base as well as on the climbing routes.
