The Mughal Emperor Jehangir enjoyed hunting around the area known as Sheikhpura. In 1616 he built a hunting pavilion at the centre of an artificial lake, and the Hiran Minar, a tower in the memory of his pet deer. In 1619 he built e massive red brick fort, which is still standing.The lake is square and held by bricks and is well stocked with fish. A little arched pavilion stand at each corner of the lake and steps lead down to the water. An arched causeway leads to the three-storey octagonal pavilion in the centre, where Jahangir sat in the graceful arcade and watched the wild animals drawn to the water. Near the end of the causeway stands the deer tower, dedicated to the deer Jahagir called Mansaraj.
