It is said that king Durjan Shah shifted his capital from Khukhragarh to Navratangarh. He constructed the fort between 1636 and 1639 CE. After his release from Mughal captivity, the Raja decided to build the fort. Navratangarh was in a strategic location as it was surrounded by forests, hills and rivers. King Ram Shah built Kapilnath Temple in 1643. He succeeded by Raghunath Shah. He also built several temples. Yadunath Shah shifted capital to Palkot due to Mughal invasion.
