Built in the 16th century, Betla Fort is located deep within the Betla National Park at a distance of about 25 kms from the tribal village of Betla. Right from Akbar to Aurangazeb, this fort was historically invaded by four Mughal rulers. As of now, Betla Fort is a ruined site which once was the seat of power of the Chero kings who ruled Palamau at the beginning of the 16th century. Also known as the Tribal Fort, this fort is around 120 meters in height. Eventually, this fort was also captured by the British in 1779.
