We dug and dug, but couldn't find much about the history of the Sendhwa Fort. We are trying to crack a local source, we suggest you hang in there a little longer.

I heard that the fort belonged to the man named "Sendhaw" who was the general of the Queen of Indore city named Ahilya Bai Holker.
Later the town was named after him.Earlier the whole city resided in that fort itself,it expanded later.1.2k Views ·

No,wrong findings.I saw myself,a wooden decorated seat with back carved like peacock & her name in English was carved Ahilya Bai Holkar.It was kept left side of the main gate outside.I could have taken it home but I was scared of my late father Shri Jaswant Singh (Well known as Sufi Saheb).I was 7th class student,probably in 1950-1951.There were a lot of papers piled & scattered inside ways after the main entrance.The fort is many many years old.It had Cannons(Tops)on top of the walls in all directions,engraved in Arabic language.There were many Hindu Gods statues carved on the walls inside but were broken.Seems to be built by a Hindu ruler but later taken over by a Muslin ruler.There was a Mud Castle(Kachch Killa) inside & it had two stories brick broken building (Palace)In the area of this building,there is an entrance to underground escape routes in different directions.Fairly cold place but with fresh air.There was a grave on left side of the entrance under a tamarind(Imlee)tree.I had some dugout copper Chubby hand cut coins with Arabic writings.I tried to analyse them but failed,even in England.My respected teacher Shri Laxminarayan Dube,might be a good source of information,I think if he is still alive,otherwise his children might have some information.please do let me know if anyone finds about The History of Sendhwa Fort.I will be very grateful.Many thanks.
