A fort that speaks the glory of centuries old tradition, Barabati fort boasts of the glorious rule of the mighty empire of Ganga rulers. Originally constructed in the 11th century, this fort has been subjected to further modification and in the 14th century, it has been thoroughly modified in to its present form. This medieval fort on the banks of Mahanadi River is really worthy for a visit since it beholds the remnants of a past legacy, which is reflected in its intricately carved gateway, moat and the earthen mound of the nine-storied palace.

Most alluring structure in the fort premises might be the gateway, which is greatly embellished with beautiful carvings of complicated nature. Another interesting attraction in this amazing citadel is the 20-yard ditch inside the bastion. This might be dug to protect it from the intruding enemies. While preserving the elegance of the old grandeur the interiors of the fort has been converted in to a modern stadium where important cultural fiestas and sports events are conducted.
