Where: AmristarBuilt by a local chieftain in the 18th century, the Gobindgarh Fort is one of the oldest forts in Punjab. It was acquired, conquered and re-built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh in early 1900s, who then named it after the Sikh guru, Guru Gobind Singh. The fort is just 2.5km from Golden Temple and is easily reached by public transport.
Being really fond of ancient structures and all the antique heritage and items that come with them, I visited the Gobind Garh Fort which was constructed by Maharaja Ranjit Singh in the early 18th century. The structure has still been kept entirely intact and proves it's durable build. The construction and design of the fort was to defend against the attacks of the Afghans. The fort is not open to public now and has been taken over by the Indian security forces, but one can peek a view from the outside.
