Lohagarh Fort

Lohagarh Fort Review

In Bharatpur's Old City, this fort is also known figuratively as the Iron Fort, though it's built of mud. The structure might seem fragile, but it was tested by a British siege in 1805: armed with 65 pieces of field artillery, 1,800 European soldiers and 6,000 Indian sepoys did manage to win the battle, but they failed to break down the invincible fort.
