The fort significance is ,it is the only Mugal period foundry for cannon making.Kr Man singh of Amber won Kabul 1580AD ,he learned cannon making ,so he setup his own foundry.
The world famaous "Jaibaan",the lasrgest Cannon in Asia.
It weigh 50 tons,length is 20 feet, range upto 30km&fired with 100kg gun powder.

In histry it was only test fired,never used for any war.Cant move anyother place,its so huge.But can move all direction using carriage with turning wheels.
