About Akhnoor Fort

Located in the little town of Akhnoor which is about 28 kilometers from the city of Jammu, is the majestic Akhnoor Fort. The Chenab Rivers flows adjacent to the fort, and we all have the hint as to how spell bounding is the sight of a river flowing along the border of a mighty fort. This two-storeyed fort was constructed by Mian Tez Singh in 1762 A.D and was later completed by his successor Raja Alum Singh in 1802 A.D. The high walls of the fort face the courtyard and have mural paintings. Murals are artworks that are painted directly on the walls, the ceiling or any permanent surface for that matter. The Aknoor Fort has an impressive architecture. It features many arches at regular intervals. These are accompanied by bastions which are angular structures that project outwards. But that’s not what is most interesting about the fort. It is the fact that the fort is perched up on Manda. Manda is an ancient site excavation at which have revealed startling details about its culture. History lovers will be delighted to know about the findings representing different periods, like Period 1 is represented by Harappa red and grey pottery, Period 2 by early historic pottery, and period 3 by Kushana objects.

Historical Context: The fort is from 19th century and is located in archeological remains of Harappan Civilisation
