Asigarh Fort, also called Hansi Fort is located on the eastern bank of Amti lake in Hansi town of Haryana, India, about 135 km from Delhi on NH9. It is also known as Prithviraj Chauhan's Fort or Prithvi Raj Chauhan Ka Qila and has been declared a centrally protected monument by ASI. Spread over 30 acres, in its prime days this fort used to be in control of 80 forts in the area around it. Likely built by emperor Harshvadhana's dynasty, it passed to Tomar and then Chauhan kings before falling in the hands of Delhi Sultanate, Maratha Empire, Jat Sikhs, independent European adventurers, and British Raj.
