Gagron Fort - A Historical Place


The foundation of this magnificent, impregnable renowned fort was laid in the 7th century and the fort was completed in the 14thcentury. Outside of the fort is the Dargah of Sufi Saint Mittheshah, where a fair is held every year during the month of Moharram. Nearby is the monastery of Saint Pipa Ji, who figures amongst the chief eight disciples of Guru Ramanand and was comtemporary of Saint Kabir



Gagron Fort is perched on a low ridge at the confluence of the rivers Ahu and Kali Sindh whose water surround it on three sides. On the fourth side there used to be a deep moat completing its defenses. Gagron is among the rare forts which are both a vana and a jala durg - i.e. both water-protected and water-protected. It is surrounded by forests and has behind it the Mukundarrah range of hills.  
  

Gagron is a place which has been consecrated by the superb heroism of its Khinchirulers and highest secrifice of their women folk. Immertal Raja Achaldas Khinchiheld this fort valiantly against the Mandu ruler Hoshang Shah of Malwa. When defeat seemed imminent because of the religious treachery by the foe, Rajputs clad in saffron robe swords in hand, rushed out of the open flung gates of the fort and attained martyrdom. Their ladies performed Johar.
