Palamu Fort is one of the major archaeological monuments of the state belonging to the Mughal era, sometime around the mid 16th century, and lies within the core area of the Betla National Park. Also known as Purana Quila, the fort sits on top of a hillock and is spread over an area of 5 sq km. There is a debate about the origin of the fort, wherein some believe it is attributed to Raja Mansingh, a Rakshel ruler, and others are of the opinion that Raja Medini Rai of the Chero Dynasty built the fort.

The fort itself is very impressive with three huge double storied entrance gates constructed in the Nagpuri architectural style. Just 2 km away from this fort lies another incomplete structure, which goes by the name of 'Naya Quila'. The walls of this structure have both Sanskrit and Persian inscriptions. Historians have reported that according to these inscriptions, the fort was built in 1634 by Medini Rai, for his son Pratap Rai.
