Ita Fort Travel

Itanagar derives its name from the Ita fort which is located right at the center of the capital complex in Papum Pare district. The fort dates back to the Ahom rulers who constructed it somewhere between 14th and 15th century. The imposing but highly irregular fort which has been constructed with the help of more than 8 million bricks stand guardian to the capital city.

The figures are immaterial today but still it is interesting to know that almost 45,000 man days were utilised to build this fort which has 3 gates, the Eastern, the Western and the Southern Gates. It is a unique fort in a land where such constructions are not very common.
