The great Afghan ruler Sher Shah Suri constructed this magnificent historical fort between the years of 1539 and 1545. It is found close to Jehlum in the Punjab province today. The massive fortified military base served as a center of army command operations in its hey-day five hundred years ago.


Rohtas Fort contains 12 individual gates, each of which was constructed from ashlars stone. It is built in the masculine architectural style.

In 1997, the fort earned the distinction of World Heritage Site from the United Nations. Naturally, history enthusiasts will rightfully be in seventh heaven when they come here, but the truth is that everyone will really appreciate this glorious and powerful achievement built by pre-modern man without the help of modern-day machines.
