The mound was raised by Akbar in 1567, while he laid seize over Chittaurgarh. It is named so because Akbar paid one mohar (gold coin) for each basketful of earth placed on the mound, as it was a very dangerous work to be accomplished in front of the soldiers guarding the ramparts from above. The mound was raised to such a height that the mughal cannons could be placed over it and fired inside the fort.

Other important places within the ramparts are, the tulja bhawani temple, the tutelary goddess of the scribes; temple of Annapurna; the naulakha bhandar or nine lakh treasury; singar chauri, depicting inscriptions dating back to 1448 AD. And sat-bis-deori, an ancient jain temple, etc.
