Barabati Fort



Barabati Fort was built in the 14th century by the Ganga Dynasty. The fort in Barabati is located at the edge of a delta, which was formed by the Mahanadi River. It is situated at a distance of 8 km from the central region of Cuttack. The fort covers a total land area of 102 acres.

A large part of the fort lies in ruins but the tourism department of Cuttack has taken serious initiatives to protect the remains of the fort. A nine-storey palace that reflected magnificence and grandeur was located within the fort of Barabati. A stadium has been built within the premises of the fort where several cultural and sports events take place. Within the fort there is also a temple that adorns the image of the deity Kaytak Chandi. The fort has an entrance gate which is carved out quite intricately.

The fort is surrounded by a moat which is known as Gadakhai. The moat is 20 yards wide. The fort has been built out of laterite and sandstone. Barabati Fort is one of the prominent tourist spots in Cuttack.
