Solan Forts - Himachal Pradesh

Malaun

Malaun Fort, Solan, HImachalMalaun Fort is a Gorkha fort in District Solan but it can best be approached through Bilaspur. Coming from Shimla side, on the Shimla-Bilaspur highway, one could take a diversion one km. short of Brahmapukhar. This bifurcation is on Deoth-Mailthi-Jamli road. Malaun village is on the Maithi-Lalgarh road and the Malaun Fort is above the village on a high range. Trekking is both exciting and interesting.

With huge watch-tower-type structures on two sides, the fort is spread in about 2 Bighas of land. There is a Kali temple in the premises which lends it a kind of soothing touch. Inside the temple a magnificent pedestal in peacock shape adds to the beauty of the simple temple. The idols of Hanuman, Bhairav and other deities and the statue of a tiger are all ancient, of the time of the Raja.

Malaun has had a turbulent history. The fort was with the Gorkhas but Sir D. Ochterlony defeated the Gorkhas in a fierce battle at Lohar ghat near Malaun.

The cannons used in the battle were kept at the Malaun fort but have now been brought down to the Gorkha Training Center Museum, Sabathu.

Location: near Malaun village in Distt. Solan (Alternate Way on the Shimla-Bilaspur highway, one could take a diversion one km. short of Brahmapukhar)
