This canon, made wholly of wrought iron was probably the largest canon used by the malla kings. During the regime of malla king Gopal Singha, the tutelary deity of malla kings Lord Madan Mohan used it against Bhaskar Rao, commander of the Maratha invaders.

Nothing special here except the little history that your guide will provide and a few photos. The cannon itself is one of the biggest cannons in eastern India and has not rusted with time. The place is surrounded by houses and busy shops.
