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.
