It looks absolutely beautiful once it is floodlit from all sides at night. It has a very important legend attached to it. It is said while the construction of the Fort was going on, a spirit of a prince named Nahar Singh used to visit the construction place and destroy it. To appease the spirit, a tantrikâ was called, and finally the spirit of the prince agreed to leave on the condition that the fort be named after him, and hence the fort bears the name Nahargarh Fort.
