This fort is situated in Buxar and hence the name.It is one of the best known for the ancient looks and culture. It is the land of saint Vishwamitra. Its very gigantic and very pleasing to see. A must visit for historical lovers.
The fort is only for the namesake. The entire ground has been taken over by a government guest house. But there are scattered ruins of the 500 year old fort that make the visit worthwhile, particularly for those interested in history and heritage. The ruins need conservation. The major attraction of the place is a magnificent huge Peepal Tree (Ficus Religiosa), which must be about 200 year old.
