Lying on the outskirts of the city, the majestic Bahadurgarh Fort is a prominent tourist attraction. Built in the 17th century by first settler nawab Saif Khan during the reign of Mughal emperor, Aurangzeb, the fort is believed to have been called Saifabad. There are many notable Islamic-style monuments near the fort, including the Diwan-e-Aam and an elegant mosque. Tourists can also visit the nawabs tomb that lies a stones throw from the fort. It is said that the fort was renamed later on to commemorate the stay of the ninth Sikh Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur. Thus, it is called the Bahadurgarh Fort now. With time it was renovated and a gurdwara was built by Maharaja Karam Singh of Patiala in the 19th century. Since 1989, the grounds of the fort serve as the Punjab Police Commando Training School.
