Rohtas Fort is a magnificent memorial of Sher Shah Suri, an excellent administrator and strategist. It is only a short distance from Islamabad and the road to it is in good condition. Access to the fort and once inside to the various parts has improved a lot. The lay out is much more understandable than before the renovation. It doesn't... More

My first visit there was back in 1996 and been there over 10 times since and still haven't seen the whole fort. It's huge with 12 gates and physically demanding. It's not well maintained by the authorities unfortunately. Albeit it's an amazing place to see as there is a lot of history there. Be prepared to walk so take comfortable... More
