Rohtas Fort is located in the Son River valley, in the small town of Rohtas in Bihar, India.
Though the origins of the fort is obscure, it has colorful history from 15th century – SherShah Suri onwards.
Raja Mansingh, the governor of Mughal empire during Akbar ruled from here.
During Aurangzeb’s reign the fort was used as a detention camp for those under trial and housing prisoners sentenced for life.
The British had some trouble to control the fort initially, as the jungles and tribes were assisting the locals.
The fort is large and some of the grand structures are still intact.
