    Default -_-_Trip To Derawar Fort in Cholistan Desert_-_-

    This fort exists in middle of Cholistan desert . It is about 1,000 years old. Only walls of this amazing architecture left, because this is still a private property.
    In the middle of the desert, stands the Drawar Fort with massive walls and numerous buttresses. Nearby is the elegant Drawar Mosque, the exact replica of the Moti Masjid of Delhiā€™s Red Fort.




    Some info About DARAWAR FORT


    Drawar Fort, which lies in Cholistan Desert. This fort is

    thought by some to be the most impressive fort in this

    region. The actual age of the fort site is unknown but it has

    been built and destroyed several times. It is reputed to have

    been built by a Rawal Prince and later on it was taken over

    by the Bahawalpur Nawab (Ruler) who rebuilt it with backed

    bricks brought from Uch Sharif 40 miles away. The way

    these bricks were transported to Drawar is very interesting.

    A human line of men was made right from Uch Sharif to

    Drawar and the bricks handed from hand to hand. Where

    brought to Drawar by this conveyar belt. The fort is in good

    conditions from outside but inside most of the buildings have

    fallen down. Also worth visiting is the Drawar Mosque, which

    is a 100 years old, built with white marbel stone. Another

    interesting place of visit here is the Nawab Family buril ground where many of the old Nawab and their family are

    burried. The tomb here are attrective, built with marbel and

    decorated with blue glazed style which contrast beautifully.

He said: " You have spoken rightly", Jebreel (Gabriel) from Number 2 of "Al-Nawawi's Forty Hadiths."
