Ramnagar hosts the Qilla (Fort) that serves as the residence of Kashinaresh (King/Lord of Kashi). Shiva is regarded as the true king of kashi and therefore the royal family that ruled and looked after the well being of Kashi is titled as Naresh. The fort is built in Ramnagar, which is across the river as two Rulers (Shiva and Naresh) couldn’t have possibly resided on the same part of land. The fort is built in Mughal style and was completed in 1750. The fort houses a Veda Vyasa Temple, a south facing Hanuman Temple, a museum and the king’s residence.
