Located in the south western part of the city
in the state
, the Garchuk Lachit Garh was constructed under the Ahom kingdom
around 1670 CE. The fort
of Garchuk Lachit Garh stretches from the northern Fatasil hills at a length of about 3 km.
Built from granite stone and lime mortar, the fortification was constructed centuries ago to deter the Mughal
cavalry. This was done with two earthen ramparts and water filled lakes
in between and ditches dug in front. Currently in ruins, the Garchuk Lachit Garh fort once used to be the site for Ahom- Mughal conflicts.
