Rohtas Fort

Sher Shah Suri, the celebrated Afghan King who ruled over India, built the massive and impressive Rohtas Fort in 1540 A.D. The strength and width of this fort can be imagined from the fact that it could easily accommodate 12,000 men of Sher Shah’s army who were once stationed here to defend his domain against the Ghakkar tribes living in the vicinities of the Salt Range. This big edifice now encamps a village, which is an interesting site. But the most impressive buildings are of the Sikh Period; through in ruins they still reflect the grandeur, which the Sikhs enjoyed for a short period. Approach to Rohtas Fort marks a detour of the salt range, the abode of fierce tribes of Ghakkers and Janjuas.
