Loharu Fort is in Haryana.
One can take a step Back in Time at the Majestic Loharu Fort.
It is a state-protected archaeological monument and a 440-year-old fort is part of the Shekhawati region, which straddles the Haryana-Rajasthan border in the sandy bagar tract.
From its foundation in 1570 CE to its transfer to the Government of Haryana in 1971, the Loharu Fort has seen its fair share of battles and changes in ownership.
It’s also a symbol of the battles that were fought over it. Two major battles took place here, the first in 1671 between Thakur Madan Singh and the Mughal Governor of Hisar over land revenue, and the second between Thakur Kirat Singh and Raja Bhopal Singh of Khetri. The latter battle ended with Raja Bhopal Singh’s death outside the fort, and a Chatri was built in his honor at the place where he was cremated, about 1 km from the fort.
As you approach the fort, you’ll be greeted by its main entrance, a big doorway facing east, which leads to the various structures that were added to the fort complex over time. Although the fort is not well-maintained, it’s still a great place to visit for a day trip on holidays. Located about 60 km from Bhiwani, it’s the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.
