Raibania fort is a group of ancient forts in Baleswar district, Odisha India. This fort complex is considered as the biggest medieval fort of eastern India.

It is on the border of Odisha and West Bengal – a remote place and only used by locals as picnic spot.

It was built during the reign of Eastern Ganga ruler Narasingha Deva I.

There are 161 fort goddesses which are as “Durga devata” or “Iṣṫa devata” and Daṣasharu which is an aniconic form of the goddess Jayacaṇḍi.

Although three forts were recorded in the Ain-i-Akbari, four forts have been found here: two of the larger ones are closer to the village Raibania, and the other two are closer to the village Phulta (Phulahatta). According to The Balasore Gazetteer, the forts were devastated after the Kalapahada invaded Utkala.

It is a good place but access is difficult.
