Azam Shah, Subedar of Bengal and third son of Emperor Aurangazeb built this port in 1678 and named it ‘Kila Aurangabad but later it became commonly known as “Lalbagh Fort”. Shaesta khan who was a subedar of Bengal added grandeur to this fort. The fort is surrounded by great walls.
There is a grave of Shaesta Khan’s daughter named Bibi Pari. There is also a mosque and a common bathing place. This fort is about 2000 feet from east to west and 800 feet from north to south.
