A true symbol of the chivalry and bravery of Bharatpur Jat rulers, the Lohagarh fort stands proudly as one of the strongest forts ever built in the Indian history. Protected by deep moats on all sides, the Lohagarh fort was built in the 18th century.
In today’s times, the impregnable fort lacks the flamboyance of other forts in the region, yet its colossal structure still manages to make it one of the most popular tourist attractions. So enormous is its construction that the fort endured repetitive invasions of the Mughal and British forces in the past.
Built by Maharaja Suraj Mal, the magnificent Lohagarh fort sits on an artificial island. As one enters the fort, a number of charming monuments like Mahal Khas, Kishori Mahal, Kothi Khas and Moti Mahal are likely to come across his way.
Besides, the one that surely is eye catching is the Ashtadhatu gateway, which is a made up of eight metals. One can see paintings of huge elephants on this prominent structure in the Lohagarh Fort.
