Bagh Fort

  • Description:

    Baghsar Fort (Urdu: باغ سر قلعہ) is an ancient fort built in Samahni Valley near Bhimber, Pakistan, close to a place known as Baghsar. The fort was constructed by Mughal rulers.[1][2] Some parts of it are currently closed to visitors, due to it being right beside the line of control between Pakistan and India.[2][3]. Very little knowledge is available about the true history of the fort. It is widely believed that fort was built by Mughals but Godfrey Vigne, an English traveller who extensively traveled through Kashmir tells it was built by Dhian Singh, brother of Maharaja Ghulab Singh Dogra. He mentioned it as Amur Gurh castle in his book.[4]
