Bahadurgarh Fort

Bahadurgarh Fort is situated about 6 km from Patiala, Punjab. The fort was built in 1658 by Nawab Saif Khan and later renovated by Maharaja Karam Singh in 1837. It is surrounded by two circular ramparts and is surrounded by a moat. The circumference of the fort is 2100 m and the outer wall is 8.8 m.

The fort was given its present name by Maharaj Karam Singh as a commemoration to Guru Tegh Bahadur. Gurdwaraical Gurdwara known as Sri Gurdwara Sahib Patshai Nauvin is also seen in the fort. The beautiful Gurdwara is a fine specimen of Sikh architecture and is situated in the Panch Bati garden.

A mosque made by Saif Khan in the year 1668 is also present in the Fort. At a distance of about three hundreds yards away from the fort, one can see the tomb of Saif Khan. Every year during the months of June and January, a fair called mela roza Sharit Nawab Saif Ali is organized here.
