Vislabāk piebraukt pilskalnam ir no Liepajas-Ezeres ceļa. Pagrieziens uz pilskalnu meklējams Z 56.30,346 A 021.48,939. Šeit jūs ieraudzīsiet vienas no iespaidīgākajām saglabātajām zīmēm. Induļa un vina drauga Pudiķa atstātie zobeni un vairogi, katrs savā ceļa pusē, sargā ceļu, kurš ved uz Embūtes senleju un Joda leju, radot mitisku un cienījamu noskaņu. Tie joprojām norāda uz diženo kuršu klātbūtni Embūtes senlejā.

Lankas upītes labajā krastā atrodas Kuršu pilskalns, saukts arī par Induļa pilskalnu. Ta relatīvais augstums ir 30 m. Pilskalns ir mākslīgi veidots paugurs, kura garums pārsniedz 100 m, platums 50 m. Domājams, ka tur atradusies kuršu koka pils. 1244.-1245.g. te risinājušās sīvas cīņas. Pilskalna virsotnē redzams iedobums. Domājams, ka tur atradusies aka, kas apgādājusi ar ūdeni pils aizstāvjus. Pilskalna forma un nostāsti liek domāt, ka šeit senatnē atradies svētkalns. No pilskalna redzami gan lejā esošā Joda leja un Joda dambis, gan tālumā baznīcdrupas un senlejas gravu nogāzes.

Induļa pilskalna pakājē atrodas Joda leja – līdzens laukums, kurā vairākkārt tikušas celtas brīvdabas estrādes un notikuši vērienīgi sarīkojumi. Pašreiz Joda lejā ierīkota atpūtas vieta dabai draudzīgiem tūristiem.

Joda leju divās daļās sadala Joda dambis, kas ir 100 m garš, 2 m augsts un 6 m plats zemes uzbērums. Daudzos rakstos Joda dambis raksturots kā valnis ūdens aizturēšanai. No dažiem aprakstiem izriet, ka tā bijusi aizsardzības būve.
Grafiski dambis atgādina ļoti senu maģisku zīmi, ko Austrumu literatūrā dēvē par Iņ un Jaņ. Īpatnēji skan arī atbalss Joda dambī.

ESIET UZMANĪGI, VIETĀM KĀPŅU UN TILTIŅU KONSTRUKCIJAS IR NOVECOJUŠAS UN IELŪZUŠAS!

ENG: The best way how to approach Embutes hillfort is from road Liepaja-Ezere. Turn on small road you'll found on N 56.30,346 E 021.48,939. There you'll can see ones of the most impressive retained tokens. The swords and shields of Couronian leader Indulis and his friend Pudikis are standing on both sides of the road leading to Embute old valley and the dam Joda Dambis, creating mystic and venerable atmosphere reminding of the Couronian presence in Embute old valley.

Kursu (Indula) castle mound (125 m a.s.l.) – a man-made hill, where supposedly a wooden castle of ancient Cours had been located. On its western slope there is a spring and a legend tells that its water is tears of a young girl, who sank together with the ancient castle.

At the foot of the Indulis castle mound there is Joda leja – a flat space which had been repeatedly used for building open-air stages and organization of large-scale events. Currently there is a picnic place for nature-friendly tourists.

A 100 m long, 2 m high and 6 m wide earth dam dividing Joda leja into two parts. In several sources Joda dambis is described as a dam for holdup of water, in some – as a fortification structure. Graphically the dam resembles an old magic sign, desribed in oriental literature as Yin and Yang. Also echo in Joda dambis sounds specifically.

BE CAREFUL - THE WOODEN STAIRS AND BRIDGES ARE OLD AND BROKEN IN SOME PLACES!
