Ita Fort

About Ita Fort:

The Ita Fort at Arunachal Pradesh was built as early as the 14th or the 15th century by kings of the Chutia dynasty. The fort has an irregular shape, built mainly with bricks dating back to the 14th-15th Century. The total brickwork is of 16,200 cubic metre lengths which was probably built by kings of the Chutiya kingdom which ruled the region during that time. The excavated ruins of this historical fort are one of the major tourist attractions in Itanagar.

The fort has three different entrances at three different sides, which are western, the eastern and the southern sides. While the eastern rampart of the fort is more than half-a-kilometre long and has one gate, the western rampart is over 1.4 km long with two gates. The original height of the rampart was around 5 m and the average wall width around 1.5 m.

Interesting that the capital is named after this ford. Not much historical information available. Bricks look too new to be from 15th century. Nice view at the top.
