The historic symbol of the valley, Sindhuli Gadhi fort, is at the peak of a hill of the Mahabharata range; the city is in the plain valley made by the Kamla River. Kamalamai Municipality is the largest municipality of Nepal according to area; the occupation of the Kuti Pass in about 1756 stopped the valley's trade with Tibet. King Prithvi Narayan Shah entered the valley after the victory of Kirtipur. King Jaya Prakash Malla of Kathmandu sought help from the British and so the East India Company sent a contingent of soldiers under Captain Kinloch in 1767; the British force was defeated at Sindhuli by Prithvi Narayan Shah's army. It was the first time; the British soldiers were taken aback by the geography of the place. They were equipped with modern arms and ammunition like guns and cannons but the Gorkha army was brave and they had a better understanding of the terrain.
The place where the army of the British Empire was defeated has gained popularity. It is of great historic significance to Nepal. Rice and maize are the major productions in this area.

Tagonoura stable Naruto stable is a stable of sumo wrestlers, one of the Nishonoseki group of stables. The stable was established on 1 February 1989 by former yokozuna Takanosato Toshihide; the stable's first sekitori was Rikio in 1994. Four more, Takanowaka and Kisenosato, have reached sekiwake rank, with Takayasu going on to reach the ōzeki rank, the stable's first yokozuna being Kisenosato, it had a reputation for being a closed, family-knit stable, as Naruto did not allow his wrestlers to go out and train at other stables or socialize with wrestlers from different stables. Naruto died on 7 November 2011; the stable's current master, former maegashira Takanotsuru, changed to the Tagonoura toshiyori in December 2013 and renamed the stable accordingly. Upon changing the stable name, the stable was moved to the Ryōgoku area from Matsudo, Chiba, it has no connection to the defunct Tagonoura stable established by the late Kushimaumi. As of January 2020 it had 11 wrestlers. Many wrestlers at this stable have taken ring names or shikona that end with the character 里, meaning village or native place, in deference to their coach and the stable's owner, the deceased former Takanosato.
