Pangna fort is a tower-like structure on a fifty feet stone platform overlooking the little village spread on its either side. The seven storeyed tower-like fort-palace has an old-world grandeur. It is just 60 feet high and is built in typical hill architecture in which only wood and stone are used. The woodcarvings are decorative. In the open courtyard there is a Mahamaya temple. Pangna fort-palace has two incidents attached to it because of which the rulers abandoned the palace: one about the recovery of an idol and second the imprisonment of a princess in one of its rooms on false allegations.
