Asirgarh Fort - Review
The Asirgarh Fort also known as Asa Ahir Garh is one of the most interesting places in Burhanpur. The fort accommodates a mosque with a Shiva Temple and is believed to be haunted by the spirit of Ashwathama who was cursed by Lord Krishna. For 5000 years, Ashwathama is believed to haunt the place asking people for Turmeric to be applied on his forehead wound. He is also believed to worship Shiva at the temple and every morning fresh flowers and sandal wood are seen on the lingam.
For those who love history, stop by at the fort to admire its strategic architecture, lush green views and a slice of the Moghul period.

Dont forget to bring lots of water and good amount of sunscreen wit you, because you'll be wandering around its beautiful courts and courtyards.. Asirgarh Fort is an Indian fortress (qila) situated in the Satpura Range about 20 kilometres (12 mi) north of the city of Burhanpur, in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. Because the fortress commands a pass through the Satpuras connecting the valleys of the Narmada and Tapti rivers, one of the most important routes from northern India to the Deccan, it was known as the "key to the Deccan". During the Mughal Era, it was considered that the Deccan started here while the empire from Asirgarh to Delhi was considered Hindustan. The architecture of the fort was influenced by the Mughals, an amalgamation of Islamic, Persian, Turkish and Indian styles. There are three man made ponds to provide a water supply. There is a temple known as Gupteshwar Mahadev Mandir, dedicated to the Hindu deity Shiva. There is a local legend that Ashwatthama, a character in the Indian epic Mahābhārata, used to come to this temple to worship and offer flowers each morning to Lord Shiva. There is a ruined mosque with minarets known as Asir Masjid inside the Fort. Apart from the Hindu and Muslim architecture, some ruins are of British origin and there are also British graves. This fort has been deserted following the departure of the British.
