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.

Majestic Fort in the region with lots of history and significance. - The mosque and the "courtyard" has very nice design and inscriptions. - There is also the Mahadev Temple with Ashwatthama folklore. - There are artifacts from various times, rulers, cultures. - There are 3 small lakes at different places within the fort. - The drive up to the fort entrance is also adventurous. Lots of things to say about the fort. You can easily spend one whole day exploring the fort. Make sure you carry plenty of water with you. I don't believe there is drinking water, or bathrooms, available on the fort.
Loved it to a great extend. A place this historical is worth giving time... and good rating. Hehe!
So historic. But not maintained properly. That's a big place to roam. It's on intense hight, the view from the fort is mesmerizing.
Beautiful place. Old fort located at hill top near Burhanpur. Beautiful scenery all around. approach road is narrow, steep and full of boulder/pot holes. Small cars can reach the fort with care. Quite big, 3-4hrs required. Places to see are masjid, temple, lake, backside view point, hanging site etc. This is the fort where one TV channel claimed Ashwaththama comes daily for offering flowers to Lord Shiva Temple. I recommend a walk through the periphery wall to enjoy the facility inside fort and adventure /joy of this fort. Definitely poorly kept. Carry water and snacks.
Fort is too good to see. Rainwater harvesting techniques in those days tells us about importance of water. Jama Masjid is too good. Architecture is superb. Suggestion is for poor roads and parking area. Government should take it seriously to develop the fort soon.
