Hajiganj Fort

Hajiganj Fort situated on the western bank of the Sitalakshya River at Hajiganj in narayanganj. This Mughal fort was probably established during the time of mir jumla to counter the raids of the Maghs and the portuguese. The fort, quadrangular in size, consists of a pentagonal curtain wall machicolated for muskets with rounded corner bastioins, rampart wall around the wall inside, a free tall square column in a corner, and a gateway towards the river.
