Rohtas Fort by Hussain Khalid

Rohtas Fort is a 16th-century fortress sitting high on a rugged hilltop overlooking the surrounding valley. The fort is one of the largest and most formidable in the subcontinent. Rohtas Fort was never taken by force, and has survived remarkably intact. The main fortifications are surrounded by massive masonry walls, lined with 68 bastions and pierced at strategic points by 12 monumental gateways. A blend of architectural and artistic traditions from elsewhere in the Islamic world, the fort had a profound influence on the development of architectural style in the Mughal Empire.
