Things To do in Cuttack

Overview

Perched about 8km away from Cuttack, the Barabati Fort is a renowned 14th-century stronghold constructed during the Ganga dynasty. Strategically located on the banks of the Mahanadi River, the fort offers a breathtaking panoramic view of modern Cuttack. The fort, boasting a carved gateway and a 9-storeyed palace, was ingeniously designed for defense against enemy attacks. Today, the adjacent Barabati Stadium hosts cultural and sporting events, while a temple dedicated to Katak Chandi adds a spiritual touch to the historical site. Spanning approximately 102 acres, the fort stands as a testament to the city's glorious past, its walls constructed with sandstone and laterite.
