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.

An impregnable and awesome fort which was taken by Akhbar the great! Visit ones to find a Masjid, a Temple (associated with Ashwathama's presence) and a Church there. Half way through, road is very bad. A very sad state because of PWD.
this is wonderful place to know about our history...there is some places which is such a good and in a good conditions. n also lakes. from this height everything looks great.
At the northern edge of the massive Deccan plateau lies a forgotten fort that was once the key to open the doors to the Deccan. A survey by the by the British extolled it as the strongest fort in the country and one that was never taken by force – depending on which version of its many histories you feel should be believed. With an antiquity that only grows older every time it is explored, Asirgarh is a treasure trove of fascinating spell binding stories so fantastic in their bearing that history and myth seem dyed in the same vat of riotous emotions.
Asirgarh fort , 30 kilometres from Burhanpur , is at a height of 701 meters from sea leval ... Asirgarh fort was never conquered by direct fight but it was captured by fraudulent practice or by peaceful handover ... There is still confusion over who built it ... Some say that a man called Asa Ahir built it ... Later it came under control of Farouqi dynasty... Then Mugals , Maratha, Scindia and British... Asirgarh fort has three parts - Asirgarh Khas, Kamargarh and Malaygarh ...
Love the fort. Amazing view of satpuda mountain. The roads are newly makeover. Car or bike can easily reach the upper part of the fort.
