Qila Mubarak Complex Overview

Ranked 9 of 12 sightseeing in Patiala

Baba Ala Singh, the founder of the Patiala Royal dynasty, built Qila Mubarak, at the heart of Patiala City. Initially a mud fortress, it was later it was reconstructed in baked bricks. The interior of the fort, known as Quila Androon, was built by Maharaj Amar Singh. The fort was a rare and outstanding example of Sikh palace architecture.
The Qila Mubarak fort-cum-palace complex is spread over a vast area of 10 acres. The complex consists of Guest House (Ran Baas) and Darbar Hall (Divan Khana) besides Quila Androon. The fort also has an underground sewerage system.
The Darbar Hall here displays rare cannons, swords, shields, maces, daggers of Guru Gobind Singh and sword of Nadir Shah.
However, the 250-old fort is in bad shape now. The World Monuments Fund had listed the fort in its list of 100 'most endangered monuments' in the world in 2004. The restoration work has been undertaken to restore its former glory.
History buffs, archaeologists and architect students should definitely visit this site to get some insight into the history of the past.
Winter period is the best time to visit the fort, which can be easily accessed from all parts of Patiala.
