The surrounding area of Birbhum has some magnificent places which are worth visiting. Some of which are:
Palamau fort: Identified as a possible spot to be developed as world heritage site, the ruins of Palamau fort fall in the protected tiger reserve area in Palamau and needs immediate preservation and conservation. The historical value of Palamau fort of Jharkhand which dates back to early 1600s is immense. Probably constructed by a Chero king in the dense forests this is undoubtedly one of the rarest forts in eastern zone. The Palamau fort has a great architectural value and one can witness the traces of the splendid Mughal art and architecture at the fort. The special features of the fort are jharokhas, carvings, naubat khana and regal columns.
Maluti temples: The maluti temples are located in the state of Jharkhand and have been identified as a possible spot to be developed as world heritage site along with the Palamau Fort. The temple complex of Maluti dates back to the 17 and 19 centuries and historically very important. Located in the Shikaripara block of Dumka district Maluti village was earlier known as Mallahati. Maluti is home to a group of 110 temples of different gods and goddesses built during the reign of Basant Rai of Mala dynasty. The artistic terracotta works and exclusive designs reflecting the regional art and religion of eastern India is simply fascinating. At present the place is left with only 58 temples and these temples are also not in a good condition.
