    Fort Nandana in the Salt Range

    by besal Updated May 23, 2014

    Fort Nandana situated on the eastern side of the Salt Ranges near Khewra/Pind Dadan Khan on Jehlum road is an ancient fort, with a temple perched on top of a 500 foot cliff.

    The fort was ruled by Hindu Shahi family and Mahmud of Ghazni expelled them from here. It was built on a hilly range and it ruins are present.

    On the foothill of this fort is a village Bhaganwalla. One has to walk for approx 2 km, then climb a narrow passage to reach this fort.

    Al-Biruni, famous Muslim scholar, mathematician, historian, measured the earth circumference (11th Century) from this fort. Also in the Jehlum plain, seen in the distant, Alexander army fought and defeated King Porus....Do what one king does to another, said Porus...

    Best reachable in the cooler months (or early morning) as temperature soars to 45 C+ during summer.
