The impregnable fort noted for its iron like strength successfully withstood four british attacks. Finally, lord lake captured it in 1804. It is quite different from the other forts of state. There is no flamboyance associated to the fort, but it generates an aura of strength and magnificence. It is surrounded by a moat, which used to be filled with water to ward off the enemy attacks. The sandy ramparts were strengthened by sandy battlements, which made the enemy guns in-effective.
The fort is studded with fine monuments like kishori mahal, mahal khas and kothi khas. Moti mahal and towers like jawahar burj and fateh burj were erected to commemorate the victory over the mughals and the british army. The gateway is adorned with paintings of huge elephants.
