Fort Bala Hisar, Peshawar
(4.7/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
See the well-preserved historical walls of Fort Bala Hisar, and enjoy views over the entire Peshawar Valley. The royal family lived in this fort before it was destroyed. Later, Sikhs rebuilt the fort out of mud, which the British replaced with bricks, giving it its present day look. Unfortunately you can’t get inside the fort without the hassle of obtaining military permission, as the military uses the site. However, you won't regret visiting, if only to witness the incredible architecture and stop at the museum, which displays recovered weapons, uniforms, photographs, and other artifacts. You can buy mementos at the souvenir shop. Make Fort Bala Hisar part of your personalized Peshawar itinerary using our Peshawar vacation builder.
