General Zorawar’s Fort or commonly known as Riasi Fort, is an ancient fort known for preserving the private wealth of the rulers of Dogra in Jammu. This age old ancient monument, presently in ruins, stands above the Leh Palace and the Namgyal Tsemo Gompa.

A renowned and controversial Warrior General Zorawar Singh owned this fort. The General is remembered here for his continued struggle with the Chinese rulers over Ladakh. Apart from the valuable and wealthy treasure of the Maharaja, the fort also houses spectacular collection of coins and specimens of all new stamps issued by the state.
