Wanna see Hill & Water Fort at one place? Visit Gagron Fort in Rajasthan

Gagron Fort in Jhalawar district is also called as Jal Durg or Water Fort as it is surrounded by water while being situated on hill.

Situated in Rajasthan’s Jhalawar district, Gagron Fort, represents one of the most majestic forts in the state.

This fort lacks any kind of real foundation and is built over a solid rocky hillock.

With both Hindu and Muslim shrines situated in and around, the Fort has temples of Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha and Goddess Durga inside the fort.

Being one of the six forts of Rajasthan listed under UNESCO World Heritage sites, Gagron Fort is unique and hence is named as Jal Durg or Water Fort as it is surrounded by waters of Ahu and Kali Singh Rivers from its three sides. 

The fort hence remains impregnable.

The two rivers confluence outside the fort and gives it a pristine look.

The view from outside hence is majestic, breathtaking and serene from ramparts of the fort.
