Agori Fort, Sonbhadra


Agori Fort is situated on Renukut road approximately at a distance of 35 kms from Robertsganj and 10 kms from Chopan, in Sonbhadra district of Uttar Pradesh. It is one of the main historical monuments and tourist attractions of the region.

Formerly owned by the rulers of Kharwar, the fort was later on taken over by the rulers of Chandels dynasty. It is also called a tribal fort since it was ruled by a tribal king who was its last ruler.

The monument is circumscribed by three rivers named Vijul, Regu and Son Rivers. The fort itself is built on the bank of River Son. It is surrounded on all sides by trenches to secure it against attacks.

Tourists can reach the fort by a ferry across the River Rihand. The brave hearts can trek through the valley located by the side of Son River to enjoy its sight.
