Dhar Fort:

This is an image of Dhar fort situated in Dhar,Rajasthan. It was the Paramar King Bhoja I who laid the foundation of the Dhar Fort in 15thcentury. The fort built in red stone was encircled by a fortification wall with four gateways and embellished with 24 round and 2 square towers. It is a remarkable example of provincial Indo-Islamic architecture in Malwa. The Ghurid rulers borrowed several features from Delhi’s architecture particularly the use of battered walls of the dismantled Hindu temples, the pointed arch with spearhead fringe, the arch-lintel bracket combination, the ‘boat-keel’ dome, pyramidal roof and other decorative motifs.
