The Dhanidhar Fort of Rajauri was built in 1855 during the reign of Mian Hathu. It has been built using the ruins of the building of Jaral Rajas. Originally this fort was ruled by the Hindu kings of the Pal dynasty, before the advent of the Muslims. This fort was mainly built to keep the Dogra forces at a safe and strategic location and the fort solved the purpose, as whole of the surrounding valley was visible from here.The name of this fort is also significant with its high-elevation land portion. In ancient times, this fort was also used for defence purposes as well as to dump the grains that were collected as revenue from the farmers of the area.
