Explore the fine example of early Muslim architecture, with a dash of Turko-Persian influence seen in the colossal walls and defense cannons.

  • Good historical place but with no facility, much of area is destroyed. Govt. No more interest in this. This can be source of attraction for tourism and earning.
  • Good Strategic Fort. Fort that is round by water from 3 side. Nice Architectures. Fort having 12 doors, museum and 150 stairs well. Recommended.
  • Remains of an old historical fort constructed by sher Shah sure. Not present present completely but some walls and gates are preserved. Give you an insight in to those days.
  • A great historical monument. One who has interest in exploring heritage and history should must go there.
  • Historical fort, built by Shair Shah Suri. Nice place to visit with family and friends. Ignored by the government, visitors and locals make it a garbage site.
