Situated in Shambhu village, Mughal Sarai was built by Sher Shah Suri as a rest stop along the busy trade route, now recognised as the Grand Trunk Road. It is believed to be the emperor's most ambitious project. The large compound of the sarai has two majestic gates and a two-storeyed mosque. A deep well and a baradari are located just outside and are open for the use of passing travellers. The lush and well-laid gardens act a respite from the heat for visitors, who can come and relax here. Another heritage site that one can stop over at is the majestic Bahadurgarh Fort, lying on the outskirts of the city. It was built in the 17th century by the first settler nawab Saif Khan during the reign of Mughal emperor, Aurangzeb.
