Attraction details
Reviewed 28 July 2016

It is located on the right bank of River Chitral, next to the Shahi Mosque. Reportedly, its outer walls are more than 250 years old while the fort itself is more than 100 years old. The compound used to house the living barracks of the guards of Mehtar of Chitral as well as his palace. The facility includes the place for Mehtar's durbar/ court, his living, office, a mosque besides other rooms. Artifacts from that era are very well preserved and so are the pictures of mehtars of Chitral. One can also see the Instrument of Accession of the Chitral State to Pakistan (in original) besides some other valuable documents. However, it is not open to general public due to being private property.

Located at the Bank of River Chitral, the Shahi Fort of Chitral is made with mud and wood log is worth visiting.

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
