The Fort was developed by the Nawab of Bahawalpur about 150 years ago.

Ahmed Pur Lamma Fort is located in the district Rahim Yar Khan on the border of Sindh and Punjab.  The Fort and its surrounding village are made of mud but the encroachments with expanding town left the fort crumbling.

The Fort was built using mud and bricks.

The Fort is said to be 150 years old with as high as 25 feet walls. The site is also listed as a national heritage but it’s in a crumbling state due to lack of any maintenance or state patronage.

The Fort had been constructed and developed by the Nawab of Bahawalpur who named it after a local Nawab Ahmed Khan Abbassi.

The main entrance of the fort is also damaged from atop.


The fort is endangered due to lack of any maintenance by the Punjab Archeology Department.


The Fort was built in its own unique style which had the influence of Mughal architecture.


The walls of the fort are also caving in with the passage of time.
