about gobindgarh fort

The Gobindgarh Fort, built in 1809, was a massive structure of limestone and brick with iron-studded gates. Much of it now stands in ruins. A portion was deliberately demolished by the British, always anxious to decimate traces of the foe’s grandeur, after the two Anglo-Sikh Wars. Indeed, most of the fortifications that Ranjit put in place in Amritsar were ‘de-militarised’ by the British.

SHER E PUNJAB:-

A glorious history from the past depicted through the means of technology, to entice, enlighten, educate, enthrall and inspire.

THE BUNGLOW – ANCIENT WARFARE MUSEUM:-

The grand building of the Anglo Sikh Bunglow has now been converted to an Ancient Warfare museum and today has several replicas of instruments and attires of warfare. It has many real, lifelike figurines that are so realistic they seem they would come alive if touched.
