Bachhretu Fort is an ancient fort that was built in the 14th Century during the reign of the king of Bilaspur, Raja Ratan Chand. Once a magnificent structure, it is now in ruins but is considered to be of immense historical importance in the country. From what remains of the fort, one can imagine how massive the structure would have been when it was used during the reign of the King of Bilaspur. Some of the walls stand about the same height they were built in and are a characteristic feature of the fort. This property now comes under the Archaeological Survey of India and has been open to the public ever since.
The ruins of Bachhretu Fort lie at an elevation of 3000 feet above sea level. As one explores the fort from the inside, they can easily identify most of the rooms from the remains. The view of the surrounding hills and the serene Gobind Sagar Lake is best viewed from the fort. Photography enthusiasts must carry their camera to capture some beautiful frames. Those who enjoy exploring historical sites often find themselves lost in their imagination about how the structure would have been in the time bygone and how the people of that era might have conducted activities. Some find these ruins uniquely charming and hence is a perfect attraction for history buffs and those seeking inspiration.
