Laling. a small village with 1,549 inhabitants in 1961 in Dhulia taluka, is known for an old and ruined fort occupying the top of a hill 9.65 km. (6 miles) south of Dhulia. It is a place of considerable antiquity and the fort is supposed to have been built during the reign of the first of the Faruqi Kings. The fact that this fort and not that of Thalner was granted by Malik Raja (1370-1399) to his eldest son would show that Laling was his chief fort. It was in this fort that Nasir Khan and his son Miran Adil Khan were besieged in 1437 by the Bahamani general till they were relieved by an army advancing from Gujarat. Early in the seventeenth century it is mentioned more than once in connection with the movements of the Moghal troops' Deccan campaigns [Ellior, VII, 35, 102.]. In 1862, the fort is described, as strongly situated with very few defences left. Laling besides the fort has two hemadpanti temples in a decayed condition. There is also a mined hemadpanti well.
