About Gobindgarh Fort in Amritsar

Known as the very essence of Punjab, Gobindgarh Fort Amritsar is one of the most important historical places of the state. Spread across an area of 43 acres, the Gobindgarh Fort was initially built by Gujar Singh, and its final construction was completed by Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

The 258 year fort was first in the possession of the Misl Clan, and later it was captured by the mighty ruler of Punjab, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, in the year 1809. He renamed the fort to ‘Gobindgarh’, after the name of Shri Guru Gobind Singh, the 10th Sikh Guru. Finally the fort was annexed by the British after after the Second Anglo-Sikh War in 1849.
