The fort of Sumer Singh has been the pride of Etawah. Raja Sumer Singh was a famous king known for his bravery. . On this fort there was a Baradai, which had twelve doors, whose architecture was in such way that people get confused when they used to count because they get eleven or thirteen. On that place, there is a temple of Lord Hanuman and just adjacent to that there is a special guest house. Raja Sumer Singh built the fort in the design of Medieval Mahidarg which had a tunnel for security purposes and had underground rooms. Tunnel went into River Yamuna where the queens used to go for bath.

One tunnel was linked up with Agra. Some restoration works were taken by the government. During daytime, the fort looks very beautiful whereas in the night, the fort gets lit up by the moonlight, it looks like a wonder.
