Rohtas Fort is a garrison fort built by the great Afghan king Sher Shah Suri. This fort is 5.2 kilometres in circumference and the first example of the successful amalgamation of Pashtun and Hindu architecture in the Indian Subcontinent.
Rohtas Fort is situated in a gorge 138 kilometres from Islamabad, 16 kilometres NW of Jhelum and seven kilometres from the village of Dina. It was constructed on a hillock where the small Kahan river meets another rain-fed stream called Parnal Khas and turns east towards Tilla Jogian Range. The fort is about 300 feet (91 metres) above the surrounding area and is 2,660 feet (818 metres) above sea level and covers an area of 12.63 acres (51,100 square metres).
Rohtas Fort was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
