Asirgarh fort is also known as Asa Ahir Garh because it is built by Emperor Asa Ahir. Earlier the name was Asa Ahir Garh, later it got transformed and became Ashirgarh. Its height is 259.1 meter high from the base and from sea level it is 701 meter high. It is situated in the Satpura Range about 20 kilometres, north of the city of Burhanpur, in Madhya Pradesh. Because the fortress commands a pass through the Satpuras connecting the valleys of the Narmada and Tapti rivers, one of the most important routes from northern India to the Deccan, it was known as the "key to the Deccan"or "Gateway of South India'. During the Mughal Era, it was considered that the Deccan started here while the empire from Asirgarh to Delhi was considered Hindustan. The fort was built by Asa Ahir of the Ahir dynasty.
