About Nurpur Fort

A historical destination, Nurpur Fort, formerly known as Dhameri Fort located in the once princely state of Pathankot, built by the Pathania clan of Rajputs who ruled North India way before Indian independence. Around 100 years after the erection of the fort, it came under the dominance of the Mughal emperor-Jehangir. It is said that Jehangir’s wife Noor Jehan was smitten by the breath-taking natural beauty of Nurpur and wanted to build her own palace there. Thereafter, Dhameri Fort was renamed as Nurpur Fort. The palatial structure is one of the finest examples of Mughal architecture. The fort was destroyed by the British and later parts of it were ruined by an earthquake. The regal building houses the ancient Brij Raj Swami temple which is known to be the only place where both Lord Krishna and Meera Bai are worshiped together. Here Lord Krishna appears in a black avatar. The stone idol of the Lord was a gift to the king of Nurpur by the Maharaja of Chittorgarh. A huge Maulsari tree perched near the fort also forms a major attraction here.
