The Gagron Fort is located at a distance of about 12 kilometres from Jhalawar. The fort was built during the period of 7th century to 14th century. It is situated on a low ridge, at the confluence of the rivers Kali Sindh and Ahu and is therefore, surrounded by water on three sides. Previously, a deep moat was situated on the fourth side, in order to complete the defence system. Since the Mukundarrah range of hills is situated behind the fort, it is surrounded by forests. The fort is considered as one of those rare forts that are both ajal and avan durg, meaning it is protected by both water and forest. The Dargah of Mittheshah, the Sufi saint is situated outside the fort. At this dargah, every year, a fair is held during the month of Moharram. The monastery of Saint Pipa Ji, a contemporary of Saint Kabir is also situated nearby.
