Places to visit

  • Asirgarh Fort : One of the most well-known locations in the region is Asirgarh Fort, also called the Hansi Fort. It is also referred to locally as Prithviraj Chauhan ka Quila. The fort resembles coins from even earlier periods and is thought to have been originally constructed by Harshavardhana. According to legend, elements from the former fort were used to construct the current fort. Prithviraj Chauhan rebuilt the fort in the 12th century, and the British subsequently took control of it. George Thomas, a British officer, renovated the fort in the late 18th century. The mosque inside the fort, which has a flat ceiling and is supported by long pillars, was constructed after Prithviraj Chauhan was vanquished.As the fort was being rebuilt, George Thomas additionally put a large gate as the entrance.
