Sangni Fort

Sangni Fort also known as Sangani Killa is a fort of Sikh Period in the village Takal in Tehsil Kallar Syedan, district Rawalpindi in Punjab, Pakistan.

Sangni Fort History

The fort was probably built in the Sikh Period (1799-1849). This area came under Sandhawalia Jat ruler Maharaja Ranjit Singh in 1814.

The Fort was built to control the area and to facilitate tax collection. The British made this area part of Bewal Tehsil Gujar Khan Rawalpindi district. Gradually the fort lost its importance and became obscure. The keepers of a nearby obscure shrine moved the shrine to this fort.

The fort is in good condition with intact walls but the inside is altered and decorated due to the presence of the shrine of Sahibzada Abdul Hakeem.
