Derawar fort is one of the historical fort exist in Pakistan near Bahawalpur. It is shaped as a large square fortress. As it covers the large area of land so its forty bastions are visible for many miles in the cholistan desert. The walls are measured as circumference of 1500 meters and height is measured up till 30 meters long.
The first on the site was built by Rai Jajja Bhati, whose sister got married to a famous prince of Jaisalmer named as Deoraj. It remained in the hands of royals of Jaisalmer until captured by the Nawabs of Bahawalpur and later on it was rebuilt by them in 1733. In 1747, the fort slipped from the hands of the Abbasis owing to Bahawal Khan’s preoccupations at the land of Shikarpur. Nawab Mubarak Khan took the strong hold towards the fort back in 1804.
Red fort situated in the capital of India was modeled before as of the marble mosque located nearby the fort. There is a still strong hold which is own by the Abbasi family as of royal necropolis. The area is rich in archaeological artifacts associated with Ganweriwala, it is a vast city of Indus Valley Civilization but as-yet-unexcavated.
We should be proud that we live in a such country were ALLAH ALMIGHTY has gifted us with such a beautiful places which still exist even in this modern era of advancement and technology, where people still love to visit such places to recall our passionate history and enhance the patriotism in us and I would like to say that our youth should promote tourism an visit our historical places to learn about the background which we belong to…
