Rawat Fort is only half an hour’s drive from Islamabad. It was built in the early 16th century to defend Potohar plateau from the forces of King Sher Shah Suri. It takes its name from Arabic word meaning ‘an inn for caravans’. The fort has two gates. There is also a quadrangular building with a dome in the forts inner area, which also contains many graves. There are small cells which may have originally been rented out to wandering merchants. The fort also contains a mosque. Since it is so close to the twin cities and one can easily just drive down. It is an elegant backdrop for gorgeous photos. Today I am sharing more pictures of Rawat Fort which is located near Rawalpindi, Pakistan.
