What to Expect

The fort has mostly vanished over time and only a small portion remains which is currently under the administration of Pakistan Army. To access the fort, prior permission from the Army is required. However, the outside boundaries can be easily accessed and the watch towers are located near the main wall which are a good tourist attraction.


During the 16th century, Chakar the great “ A Local Tribal Hero “ and the leader of Rind tribe resided in the city. The tribe came into conflict with the Lashari Tribe and the ensuing war lasted for 30 years. During this time the fort was created and used as the capital of his state. After the conclusion of the war, Chakar Rind left the city and moved to Punjab. Over the years most of the fort has vanished due to poor management and maintenance.
