Commissioned by the Chandela kings of Bundelkhand, the Kalinjar Fort is one of the eight forts built in the region by the dynasty. The fortress is perched close to the World Heritage Site of Khajuraho. Numerous dynasties have claimed this fort, including the Chandelas, the Rajputs and the Solankis. The fortress’s history is rife with bloodshed. Numerous rulers hailing from Hindu as well as Muslim dynasties attempted to claim this fortress; however, none but the Chandelas could reign over it for a long time. Sher Shah Suri laid down his life in the fort, which played a pivotal role in the Revolt of 1857 against the British East India Company.
