Lohagarh Fort

, Bharatpur

No photo available!
Lohagarh Fort (Iron fort) got its name from its invincibility wherein it withstood repeated attempts by the British to conquer it. Constructed by the Bharatpur Jat ruler King Suraj Mal in the early 18th century Lohagarh is considered to be one of the strongest fort ever built in Indian history. The Lohagarh fort scores a little less on lavishness and splendor but makes up the same with the highly creative defense system that protected it every time. The monuments of Kishori and Moti Mahal and Kothi Khas are worth spending time in. The towers of Jawahar and Fateh Burj were constructed inside the fort for commemorating the victories over Mughals and British. The Ashtadhatu (eight-metals) gateway is work of great artmanship displaying paintings of huge elephants. The moat surrounding the fort thwarted at least 4 British attempts to lay siege to the fort. The gardens in the fort are beautiful and stand testimony to the artistic and aesthetic nature of the rulers.
