Garhmukteshwar
Garhmukteshwar in Ghaziabad

Garhmukteshwar is situated on the National Highways 24 joining New Delhi with Kolkata. The town is situated 100 odd kilometers from the New Delhi and is the closest point from the capital where river Ganges flow.

Garhmukteshwa is a place of hoary antiquity. The place has been mentioned generously in Bhagvat Purana and the Mahabharata. Garhmukteshwar is believed to be the part of the then city of Hastinapur, the capital city of Kaurvas. Kaurvas were one of the protagonists of the famous Indian Epic Mahabharata.

The place once boasted off a very ancient fort that is said to be built by later Pandavas, brothers of Kaurvas. A Maratha general Mir Bhawan repaired this fort during the Anglo-Maratha war. It is said that the Fort was in so good a condition when the British took possession of the place that it was found possible to locate the District Administration in it without incurring much expense on alteration. Sadly, not much remains of that Fort now and one can only trace some ruins that hardly signify the much-talked glory.


Mud Fort

The Mud Fort stands 80 km's from the din and bustle of new Delhi, which was built in the mid-18th century by the Jat rulers. The fort has bravely withstood the onslaught of the Marathas, Sikhs, Rohillas, and Rajputs, as well as the French and East India Company. The fort was built with seven turrets so as to withstand the cannons of the British.
