Obsolete fort in India, Lohagad Fort Bharatpur Unbeatable Fort
There are many forts in our country, which are famous all over the world for their special reasons. One such fort is also in Bharatpur, Rajasthan, which is called ‘Fort of Lohagarh (Lohagarh)’. The fort of Lohgarh is said to be the only invincible fortress of India, as it never won any. Not only this, the British also accepted defeat from this fort.
The Lohgarh Fort was built 285 years ago on February 19, 1733 by the Jat ruler Maharaja Suraj Mal. At that time cannon and gunpowder was more prevalent, so a special kind of experiment was made in making this fort so that the ammunition shells also hit the wall of the fort and neutralize it.
At the time of the construction of this fort, a broad and strong stone high wall was built first. To prevent the impact of cannon balls, hundreds of feet wide mud mud walls were built around these walls and water was filled in by making a deep and wide moat below it. In such a situation, even if the enemy crossed the water, it was not impossible to climb the flat wall.
It was not easy for anyone to attack the Lohgarh fort. Because the cannonballs spilled into the mortar wall and their fire would cool down. This did not harm the fort. This is the reason that enemies could never enter inside this fort.
It is said that the British attacked 13 times to capture this fort. The English army had fired hundreds of cannon shells here, but those goals had no effect on the fort. He could not penetrate the fort even once out of 13. It is said that the British army, frustrated by repeated defeats, left.

According to the British historian James Tad, the biggest feature of this fort was its walls, which are made of mud, but despite this the victory of this fort was nothing less than chewing iron gram. This fort has always rescued the sixes of the enemy and made it iron.
