Declared a World Heritage Site, Rohtas Fort has great historical and cultural value. Learn about king Sher Shah Suri, who built the stronghold in the 16th century as a form of protection from invaders, as well as to put an end to numerous rebellions happening at the time. Explore the fine example of early Muslim architecture, with a dash of Turko-Persian influence seen in the colossal walls and defense cannons. Climb up the tower and experience views of the river, the surrounding village, and the city from the other side. Make sure to check out the small museum on site.

  • Amazing Pakistani forts. Rohtas district is no exception. Distinctive architecture (Mughal, as I understand it). And colorful history, about which you can read in English or Urdu.

  • Visited a few times and it never gets boring. The amount of work it must have taken to create this always amazes me. A must visit 
  • Good cultural place inherited from Sher shah sowri. It's not well managed now if you plan to come to visit keep you plan for maximum 4 hours and bring your food with you. There is some management but not good.Yet it's worth visiting I has one large door facing kashmir and at two sides river. It has large architecturally beautiful walls. which were designed for defence and small fefwnce attacks on invaders. Though the place is open 24 hours but you should go only during day because of bad road leading to it and there is no way of staying there.
  • Hmm amazing (my home jhelum) i love it. govt should take care of that fort.......its full if life......... Not the fort, Jhelum people is also very caring and educated. Thanks....
  • There are some issues with maintanance plus almost a whole town occupying the massive premises making it a thoroughfare. None the less a great place glorifying the 15th century pre and post moghul era. Especially a must visit place for those who frequently want to stroll into history of our sub continent.
  • Beautiful fort, just a little dusty. Take food and water with u if you ho there
  • Pretty awesome place to visit. Specially the view of river is amazing when seen from fort walls. But the sad thing is it is not maintained very well although huge number visit this place.
