Chitral fort, located at the right bank of river Chitral speaks about the grandeur of its rulers. The typical Chitrali architecture is marvellous, despite being simple. The main hall tells the entire history of the fort with pictures of most of the rulers. Its an excellent tourist attraction.

A great historical monument located in Chitral town just besides the royal mosque, famous for its 1895 siege of Chitral fort, but unfortunately not open for public.

It's a good place but it was closed when I went there & nothing mentioned about the opening hours. Local authorities should take care of this

Chitral Forst is a wonderful historic treasure, but unfortunately has been neglected. Recently, the interior of the fort has been renovated, but due to certain restraints is not open for the general public.

Evening is also a good option but not recommended. There are lots of dry fruits shop around the place, where you can get good quality... More

Knowing something of the history of Chitral helps appreciating the fort. Having read the travails of the British in Chitral made the visit more interesting.

Chitral Fort is has greater attraction for visitors given its unque architectural style from defensive and administrative point of view. The fort was constructed by the 'Mehtars' or princes of the Katoor dynasty. The fort is stretched on an extensive area on the bank of roaring Chitral river under the cool shadow of centure old huge trees of Chinar.
