Overview for Forts of Pakistan

The book, under prologue, gives a very concise history of the category of fort, although it is a subject worth tackling in a much wider context and over full volumes. The individual articles then examine the major historical and regional traditions of fort architecture, spanning over some five thousand years and encompassing almost all parts of Pakistan. The forts, of fortresses, having their place in the following treatise are found today in their physical form, either excavated from under tons of earth or simply lying above ground. But by no means they are the only ones that exist in the country. In fact the whole of Pakistan is literally strewn with remains or buildings representing forts. However, the accounts of only those have been included here as were found more representatives in the context of geographical, historical or architectural perspective. Here it would also be relevant to note that the forts in this treatise follow a loose chronology and are mentioned in ascending order that is starting from the earliest to the latest periods. Some of these forts in their present shape do not necessarily belong to the period as they were first founded. In such cases effort has been made to reckon their date of origin to set their order, though the description matches best their present condition.
