Conceived and designed to last for years-Lohagarh Fort, true to its name, stood solidly against many attacks by the British, frustration them to no end. It faced the British onslaught four times and after a long siege they had to withdraw, but Lord Lake’s successor, Arthur Wellesley, ultimately managed to capture Bharatpur for the British.
It is very different from the other forts in the State. There is no flamboyance associated with his fort, but it radiates an aura of strength and magnificence. The fort is surrounded by a moat which was filled with water to ward off the enemy attacks. The sandy ramparts were strengthened by sandy battlement, thus the enemy guns proved of no avail.
