Sujanpur Fort Overview

Ranked 20 of 21 sightseeing in Kullu

Sujanpur Fort was constructed by Rajah Abhaya Chand of Kangra in 1758. Located on the banks of River Beas, this fort is famous among travellers due to its beautiful paintings. The forts possess a huge ground, where the annual Holi festival is celebrated for a period of 3 to 4 days. In the early 19th century, it was the home of Rajah Sansar Chand, who was the King of Kangra and patron of the Pahari School of miniature paintings.

This fort served as the refugee centre when the king lost Kangra Fort to the British. The fort contains a hall, which has twelve chambers. These chambers were used as seats of honour for other Rajahs, who used to visit Rajah Sansar Chand. The temples of Gaurishankar, Narbadeshwar and Murli Manohar are popular among the locals. Although the region was affected by an earthquake in 1905, the beauty of the fort has remained unaffected till date.

Located in Hamirpur Town in Sujanpur, the fort has a 'Barahdari Hall', where Rajah Sansar Chand used to hold his court, along with some shrines and wall paintings. Sujanpur was the capital of Katoch Dynasty. In the town, adventure sports such as angling, rafting and trekking can be enjoyed.
