Kundar came into prominence in 1180s with the decision of Khet Singh to built his capital at this site. Khet Singh annexed the Jinagarh fortress of the Chandelas and established his own capital. Maharaja Khub Singh Khangar, the grandson of Khet Singh, built a fort in place of the fortress after the death of his grandfather. This fort built by Maharaja Khub Singh was named 'Garh Kundar'. It remained the capital of the Khangar kings, until it was captured by Mohammad Tughlaq. Garh Kundar passed on to Bundelas, who were the vassals of the Mughals.

The fort is one of the principal attractions in Garh Kundar. It is a magnificent complex with a large, spacious courtyard. It is said that Princess Kesar De committed 'jauhar' in the courtyard of the fort. The fort also possesses few inscriptions on its pillars. One can also come across beautiful flooring, which are said to be renovated by the Bundelas.
