An ironically constructed relic, on the name of a boon bestowed Banasur, the man with a thousand arms, whereas the fort gives an air of amourous nature, and is the perfect spot to watch the origins of Lohaghati river.
The only structure in the area said to have been constructed in the medieval time, Banasur ka Kila is about 20 kms from Champawat, and about 7kms from Lohaghat. What is interesting about this place, and similar to the Gwal Devta Temple is, that this is a place you visit for its legacy, than for its actual physical presence. Banasur ka Kila was constructed in the memory of Banasur, the eldest son of the mythologically famous King Bali, because he was assassinated here by Lord Krishna, when Banasur had tried to kill Krishna's grandson Aniruddha. To reach the fort, you must journey to Lohaghat, about 5 kms from Champawat and from Champawat to Karnakarayat which is about 6 kms from Lohaghat, and then it's a kilometer long walk to Banasur ka Kila, best taken with a generous dose of tales from the inhabitants.
