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.
