Iron Fort in Bharatpur

A main highlight of the city, Iron Fort in Bharatpur is known to be one of the most invincible forts in the state of Rajasthan. A fort reminiscent of its glorious past attracts a large number of tourists every year. The main highlight of this fort is that it could never be conquered. Even the modern artillery of the British Empire could not succeed in taking over the fort after an unrelenting attempt that lasted for one month.

Iron Fort in Bharatpur is said to have been built by Maharaja Surajmal of Bharatpur. It is believed that it took nearly twenty years for the fort to be completed. The construction work of the fort started in the year 1730 when Maharaja Badan Singh, the father of Maharaja Surajmal was the ruler of Bharatpur. By the time the construction work of the fort got completed in the year 1750, Maharaja Surajmal had taken over the throne. It is said that since its inception, Iron Fort was never invaded. Keeping in mind, the frequency of invasions in the area, Maharaja Surajmal had constructed this fort in such a way that no one could ever take over this fort. The main feature of this fort that makes it unassailable is a gorge that surrounds the fort and is 100 feet wide and 60 feet deep. Apart from this, a high mud wall also protects this citadel.

The Iron Fort in Bharatpur today houses an extensive museum. The tourists can go there to see articles like swords, daggers, guns, double barrel guns, long barrel guns, daggers, safety shields and revolvers apart from antiques like hunted cubs, bear kids, hunted tigers, deer, wood articles, jewelry boxes, hand fans, stone vessels, dresses and ornaments.
