Tiun and Sriun Forts, Bilaspur (HP) Overview

The Tiun and Sriun Forts are located on two different mountain peaks facing each other. Tiun Fort is located on the Tiun range of hills about 55 kilometres from Bilaspur and is one of the ancient forts in the region. Sriun Fort is located on the eastern side of the Tiun range. What remains today are just the ruins, but the fortifications are still considered to be having immense historical importance. It was built during the reign of Raja Kahn Chand and was the property of descendants of Chanderiwanshi Rajputs of the Chanderi Dynasty. The forts are thus a well-known attraction in Bilaspur. The natural landscape surrounding draws nature lovers and is a preferred picnic location due to its proximity to the town.

The Tiun Fort spreads over an area of 14 hectares on the hilltop, and the structure is said to be 10 metres tall. According to researchers, the granary in the fort premises could hold about 3000 kilograms of grain. There were also two water tanks inside the compound. The Sriun Fort is a structure entirely made of stones. Locals believe that the stones from the fort cannot be used to build any other house as it brings bad luck. The location of the forts makes them one of the best sites to view the sunrises and sunsets. Once used as a shield to protect the Chanderiwanshi Rajputs from the enemies, the fascinating ruins in the midst of the mesmerising surroundings must be experienced while exploring Bilaspur.
