oldest fort in india

India is considered a land of ancient forts and monuments. This is because before the British in our country, many kings used to rule in different areas. It includes the names of Mughal and Rajput kings. One such fort is located in the Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh. This fort is spread over 463 acres. It is the largest fort among the forts present in Himachal.

We are talking about Kangra Fort, this fort is no less than a mystery. No one has any information about when this fort was built. It is believed to have been built by the Rajput family of Kangra state (Katoch dynasty), who gave themselves the evidence of being a descendant of the ancient Trigata kingdom. The mention of the Trigata kingdom is found in the Mahabharata.

This is how it happened under the British

There are many stories about Kangra Fort which are associated with loot, betrayal and destruction. It is said that there was a time when Kangra Fort was famous for immense wealth. This was the reason that it was attacked by Mahmud Ghazni, Muhammad bin Tughlaq, Firoz Shah Tughlaq, Akbar.

In 1789, finally Raja Sansar Chand II of Katoch dynasty won his ancient fort from the Mughals but in 1809 Maharaja Ranjit Singh captured the fort. It remained under the supervision of the Sikhs till 1846 and after that it came under the British.

The British left this fort after a severe earthquake on April 4, 1905, but it caused heavy damage to the fort. Due to this many valuable artifacts, buildings were destroyed, but still this fort itself holds many stories of history.
