Built by Maharaja Surajmal in the 18th century, the Lohagarh Fort is a specimen of one of the finest architectural monuments in Rajasthan. The fort got its name from its invincibility wherein the British tried hard to conquer it and is considered as one of the strongest forts in the history of India. However, this massive structure is not associated with lavishness and richness but it is the strong defense system that makes it unique and protected it every time. It has two gates- Ashtdhaatu to the north and Chowburja in the south. It houses three palaces namely Mahal Khas, Kamra Mahal and Purana Mahal among which the Kamra Palace now serves as the State Archeological Museum. There are two towers in the fort known as Jawahar Burj and Fateh Burj which were constructed to celebrate the victories over Mughals and British. Dotted with beautiful gardens, the Lohagarh Fort is a testimony to the aesthetic beauty and architectural excellence of bygone era.
