Depending on the engine I'm sure somebody will be able to help you. It's just a matter of how many people know something about it.

Yes, we will probably be able to identify it.

I think you probably intended to say 18th century, which would be 1700s.

Pictures of it will be invalueble, identifying it.

Here is the area where Moradabad, India is:
http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&so...ed=0CAsQ8gEwAA
Looks like it is in the north near the border with Nepal. The satellite image shows a large city with a river passing by on the east.
The local time there will be GMT +5-1/2. (US eastern time zone is GMT -5, US central is GMT -6, etc) Right now it is 4:30pm (1630) in St. Louis, MO USA, so it is 4:00am in Moradabad, India.
With Google maps & satellite images we can all see the area that this fort is if rajivkrishan will offer directions. I would be interested in seeing & learning more about it!
