Rohtas Fort is a 16th-century fortress located near the city of Jhelum in the Punjab province of Pakistan. This fort is one of the largest and most formidable in the subcontinent. It has the historical significance that Rohtas Fort was never taken by force, and it has survived remarkably intact. The fort was built by Raja Todar Mal by the orders of Sher Shah Suri, partly to suppress the local Gakhar tribes of what was then the Potohar region.
The fort is known for its large defensive walls and several monumental gateways. Rohtas Fort was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, as an “exceptional example of the Muslim military architecture of Central and South Asia.” The fort is situated eight kilometers south of the Grand Trunk Road. It is approximately 16 km North West of Jhelum, and is near the city of Dina. It is approximately 3 km from Khukha. The historic Shahrah-e-Azam road once passed along the outer northern wall of the fort. The fort is open to visit between 8 am to 5 pm.
