Rohtas Fort, built in the 1540s by Sher Shah Suri, an Afghan, is one of the most imposing historical monuments in Pakistan. It is situated on the bank of the Kahan River near Dina, 12 miles northwest of Jhelum in Punjab. It was built to resist the forces of the Gakkhars, the most powerful tribe of the Potohar. Village Mlundi was situated here, but after the construction of the fort, the place was named Rohtas after another Rohtas Fort in Behar (India), which Sher Shah had captured earlier.
