West Bengal  Places to see KURUMBERA FORT


Location : Gangeshwar Village, West Bengal, India.

Nearest Town : Keshiari

The Kurumbera Fort is located in the Gangeshwar Village to the south east of the Keshairi and is about 4 km from the village. This fort includes small temples and quarters which is protected by the Archaeological Survey of India. Keshairi village is situated in the Paschim Medinipur district of West Bengal. The town is small with 27 km from Kharagpur. Keshairi received huge importance when the construction for the bridge in Bhasara Ghat over Subarnarekha enables to enter Orissa. Even Keshiari developed its importance when it connected Belda, Bhashara Ghat and Kharapur as road junction. This road junction got connected to Ganganeshwar Village, which is known for the historical fort that is Kurumbera.

The Kurumbera fort was built in the year 1438 to 1469, which is written in Oriya Inscription during the period of Kapileswar’s Deb. The structure has also build a stone inscription quoted during Aurangzeb’s era. It is said that the fort was built in one night, when Ram and Sita during their “Vanwas” visited this place. Beside these the fort has three domes like structure on the platform along sacrificial altar. As the parts of the monuments are ruins from most of the side, the ASI put efforts in order to prevent them by employing lime motar and cement in external pillars to support the fort. The roof of the pillar is flower shaped. The circular pillar on the left dome is somewhat interesting. The inscription that was stated on fort in Oriya script is now not decipherable.
