See the well-preserved historical walls of Fort Bala Hisar, and enjoy views over the entire Peshawar Valley. The royal family lived in this fort before it was destroyed. Later, Sikhs rebuilt the fort out of mud, which the British replaced with bricks, giving it its present day look. Unfortunately you can’t get inside the fort without the hassle of obtaining military permission, as the military uses the site. However, you won't regret visiting, if only to witness the incredible architecture and stop at the museum, which displays recovered weapons, uniforms, photographs, and other artifacts. You can buy mementos at the souvenir shop. Using our international travel planner, Peshawar attractions like Fort Bala Hisar can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
