Haryana Tourism - Feroze Shah's Fort and Palace
 

Feroze Shah Tughlaq constructed a fort here and called it Hissar-e-Firoza (fort of Feroze) and dug canals from the Yamuna and Ghaggar rivers to irrigate the dry land. It is a grand structure complete with a basement and a mosque. He built a mosque called Lat ki Masjid. Humayun built a Masjid at Fatehbad, near Hissar town. Emperor Akbar made Hissar the headquarters of the district earlier controlled by Feroze Shah. During early 19th century the British took Hissar under their charge along with the rest of Haryana. Hissar is now an important industrial center of Haryana having lots of Steel and Cotton industries. Chaudhary Charan Singh Agriculture University, also called Hissar Agricultural University is one of the foremost full-fledged educational institutions dedicated solely to agriculture. Beside the above, there are many other monuments like Jahaz kothi, Gujri mahal and Jain pillar.

In the massive western wall of the palace, is embedded a passage to which steps lead from the terrace. The passage that was meant for roofs guarding the palace is provided with bastions, the hollow core of which has a pillared hall connected with other rooms and cells of the palace. It is provided with bastions. The eastern side of the palace contains some structures in red sandstone, which are of later origin, as is the lotus-tank situated on the terrace.
