According to the Madalapanji, the post was worked by Lalatendu Kesari of Kesari administration (Somavamsis) when it was known as Sarangagarh, in light of the fact that the region had huge number of water bodies loaded up with lotus and in Sanskrit, Saranga implies lotus. Later on Baraha Kesari revamped the fortification, which was caught by Ganga lord Chodaganga Deva subsequent to overcoming Karna Deva, the last leader of the Somavamsi tradition in 1110 AD. There after the stronghold of Sarangagada got known as Chudangagada after the name of the victor Anantavarman Chodaganga Deva.
