Buxa Fort in Dooars is one of the earliest forts in Eastern India. It is said that the Tibetan Emperor Tsong-Sin-Gyampo built Buxa Fort during the Tibetan invasion in North East India during the second half of 7th century. But there is also another theory for the origination of Buxa Fort. The first ruler of Kamtapur dynasty King Sangkalp might built the fort to stop the invasion of Tibetan army. It  has been long under the possession of Koch Kingdom until the Bhutanese occupied it and used Buxa Fort as a garrison to protect the portion of the famous Silk-route connecting Indian with Tibet. At the end of 18th century British army invaded the Buxa Fort on request of Koch King and took away from the Bhutanese in the second Dooars war. The British reconstructed the fort after occupying it.
 
Buxa Fort used as a detention camp by the British ruler during the time of Indian freedom movement. The Fort was the most notorious and unreachable prison in Indian after the famous Cellular jail in Andaman. Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was said to have been imprisoned here for the time being. After independence the Buxa Fort was used as a refugee camp for Tibetans and Bangladeshis.
