Baro Duari Gate

Baroduari is a victory memorial that consists of twelve gates that were built upon the orders of Emperor Maharaj Kirtichand. According to historical evidences, the palace of the king of Bardhaman was at Kanchananagar before the construction of Mahatab Manjil. Shova Singha, a zamindar from the region of Chitua along with some other zamindars from Baroda captured the palace of the king of Bardhaman. After besieging the palace, the zamindars also imprisoned Princess Satyabati and tortured her ruthlessly. This prompted the Princess to commit suicide but after she had murdered one of the zamindars. To avenge these atrocities, Maharaja Kirtichand conquered Chitua and Baroda in the year 1337. To commemorate this victory, he built twelve gateways out of which currently, only one has been able to survive after all the struggles and has withstood the ravages of time.
