Derawar Fort

INTRODUCTION

Derawar Fort is an enormous square fortification in Ahmadpur East Tehsil, Punjab, Pakistan. Found around 100 km south of the town of Bahawalpur, the forty bastions of Derawar are noticeable for some miles in the Cholistan Desert. The dividers have an edge of 1500 meters and face thirty meters high.

Derawar stronghold was worked by Rai Jajja Bhatti, a Rajput leader of the Bhatti clan.The post was worked in the ninth century AD as a tribute to Rawal Deoraj Bhatti, a Rajput sovereign ruler of the Jaisalmer and Bahawalpur regions who had his capital at Lodhruva.The fortification was at first known as Dera Rawal, and later alluded to as Dera Rawar, which with the progression of opportunity arrived to be articulated Derawar, its present name.

In the eighteenth century, the post was taken over by Muslim Nawabs of Bahawalpur from the Shahotra clan. It was later redesigned by Abbasi rulers, yet in 1747 the post slipped from their hands inferable from Bahawal Khan’s distractions at Shikarpur. Nawab Mubarak Khan took the fortress in 1804.

This truly noteworthy stronghold shows a gigantic and amazing structure in the core of the Cholistan desert, however it is quickly weakening and needing prompt precaution measures for protection.
