About Phillaur Fort

Phillaur Fort is a major tourist attraction in Ludhiana, which has a high historical significance. The Police Academy and Finger Print Bureau are also now stationed here at the fort. Phillaur Fort is located about 14 km away from the city and at the banks of the Sutlej River. The town where the fort is situated is named as Phillaur after a Sanghera Jat, Phul, who called the town 'Phulnagar,' and it subsequently came to be known as Phillaur. The fort was constructed by Governor Mokham Chand, who was the general of the Maharaja, along with an Italian architect. Each gateway of the fort is named after Mughal cities as Delhi and Lahori gates. There is also a huge enclosing wall surrounding the fort, which is of 4.7 meters. The high and broad archway at the entrance measures 3.7 m. Phillaur Sarai is a major attraction here, which was believed to be built by Shah Jahan.
