Salimgarh Fort

Salimgarh Fort was built on an island of River Yamuna by Islam Shah Suri and he was the son of renowned Sher Shah Suri. In 1622 A.D., Jahangir constructed a bridge and connected the fort to the mainland but the bridge was removed later by Britsihersa nd they made railway line through it. It also served as the state prison during Aurangzeb’s rule and British also continued it as a prison with the leaders of the Indian National Army were imprisoned in 1945 and now the memorial was developed inside the fort. The fort has a triangular plan and its thick walls are built in rubble masonry.

The fort has gone through conservation measures with Mahatma Gandhi also put emphasis on the conservation of the Fort. Now, the new Signature bridge also makes one of the reason to visit the bridge. It has added to the ambience around the fort and the Salimgarh Fort looks great with the background of this bridge. Also, an arch connecting the Red Fort and Salimgarh Fort is built which gives easy access to it and also the nearby attractions are Red Fort, Jama Masjid along with Chandni Chowk, St. James Church and Dara Shikoh Library.
