Detail of Mcqs:

Rohtas Fort  قلعہ روہتاس; is a 16th-century fortress located near the city of Jhelum in the Pakistani province of Punjab. The fort is one of the largest and most formidable in the subcontinent. Rohtas Fort was never taken by force, and has survived remarkably intact. The fortress was built by Raja Todar Mal on the orders of Sher Shah Suri, partly to suppress the local Gakhar tribes of what was then the Potohar region. Some Gakhar tribes were allies of the Mughal Empire, and refused to recognize the suzerainty of Sher Shah Suri. The fort is known for its large defensive walls, and several monumental gateways. Rohtas Fort was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, as an "exceptional example of the Muslim military architecture of Central and South Asia."
