At the top Chure Hills at the North of Devdaha, the Mathagadhi fort is believed to have been the western gateway to the Kapilvastu Kingdom from Koliya in ancient times. Many ancient weapons have been found here at the site. Nepali armu used Mathagadhi fort to confront the British soldiers during Anglo-Nepali war. The local communities have conserved the weapons and built a temple at the site. One can see spectacular views of Devdaha, Nawalparasi and Palpa form Mathagadhi hills.
