Fort of Shamser Gazi

This Fort (locally known as Kella) is located 1.5 kms on the east from Champaknagar which is located on the road that leads to Ramgar from Feni town. The local villagers identify the top of a hill as south-east corner of the extended Kalla (fort). Near it there lies a hill in which there is a 30 metre-long tunnel and at the foot of the hill there are three Dighis. According to the prevalent hearsay, Shamser Gazi was a landlord and a friend/ally to Tripura state. In the eighteenth century a battle between Tripura and British armed forces took place. Shamser Gazi fought for Tripura against the English forces and sacrificed his life in the battle.
