History of Umerkot Fort

Once known as Amarkot, the fort of Umerkot is on the brink of extinction as not only the record of its original builder; Amar Singh has been overlooked who was also the leader of this region but also the heritage is declining towards a dead end. The walls are in pathetic condition, the stairs leading to the watchtower are missing here and there and the sign boards have also been faded.
A member of the Sodha family, a sub-tribe of the Rajputs who settled in Umerkot around 11th century, Vikram Singh claims that the government has been unable to give the right amount of appreciation to his ancestors for building the fort.
