About Chilapata Forests

Chilapata Forest is located near to the Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary. The forest houses animals such as the leopards, wild pigs, elephants and the rhinoceroses. As you approach towards the forest, be assured to catch the glimpse of the clock towers, wooden bridges and the squealing of the animals. Inside the forest is an important monument - Nalraja Garh. This monument is 2000 years old and is extremely picturesque. It has been in existence since the Gupta period. Another interesting location in the forest is the Torsha river. The rhinos have a gala time drinking the water from this river. Further, the sunset here is simply priceless as the sun sets deeper and deeper in the evening leaving the sky orange.

Historical Context: The most important reason for visiting this forest should be visiting the Mendabari Fort and the CE Nal that have been in existence since the 5th century.
Pro Tip: Do not visit the forest during the dark hours as it can be hazardous.
