Fort of Azad Khan (Kharan Fort)

  • Description:

    Kharan Fort (Urdu: خاران قلعہ) is a fort located in Kharan District, Balochistan, Pakistan.[1]. Kharan Fort was built by Azad Khan Nosherwani of Kharan.[2] Azad Khan constructed eleven fortifications around the city, bolstering its defenses against potential threats from Afghanistan, the State of Kalat, and foreign traders.[1]
    However, the fort’s construction faced numerous water-related challenges that hindered progress.[1] Repeated attempts at well and Karez construction yielded no viable water source, rendering fort construction unfeasible.[1]
