Although the Lohagarh fort may be lacking in extravagance and splendour of other forts in Rajasthan, however its impregnable fortress walls and rock solid gates not budging from position even after the impact of manifold force earned it the name of Lohagarh or the Iron fort. The Lohagarh fort is a living testimony of the times that used to be, the chivalry and might and power of the Jat rulers of Bharatpur.
Apart from other fascinating monuments and memorials present inside the fortress premises, Lohagarh Fort also houses two monuments, namely Jawahar Burj and Fateh Burj, built by none other than Maharaja Suraj Mal to celebrate his victories over the invading Mughal and British forces. Both the British and Mughals used all their might to penetrate the fortress and bring down its walls. However, they were thwarted in their efforts and forced to raise siege every time. Undeterred the British made repetitive attempts but every time victory was in favour of Raja Suraj Mal. It was only the feuding Maratha forces who made a pact with Maharaja Suraj Mal after they were thwarted in their efforts and formed an alliance.
