Overview of Shergarh Fort
In the mid 16th century, the Shergarh Fort was restored to protect the Afghan kingdom from the onslaughts of the Mewar on the western frontier. The forts location was a strategic one as a defence measure. Embellished with enchanting images and beautifully carved sculptures of Hindu Gods and delicate Jain motifs, the Shergarh Fort was in use until the beginning of 20th century. There are four entrance points to the fort but the one in the east is the frequently used. Currently in ruins, the Shergarh Fort also houses a Hanuman Temple, several palaces, courtyards, a tomb and several other structures.
