Jatashankar Fort

Description
About six km. north of village Fatehpur, there is a strong fort named Jatashankar. The fort was built in 1643 by Fatehsingh, who was a revenue officer of the Raja of Shahgarh. Two inscriptions found at Jatashankar are in Rajasthani and Sanskrit, one being a free translation of the other. The record recites Vijayapala heroic achievements of Harsharaja, the grandson of Vijayapala; and Vijayasimha, son of Harsharaja. The absence of any regal title indicates that these were perhaps, commanders of armies. Possibly related to the Guhila princes of Mewar.
