Legend has it that it was named after a princess gave birth to a baby son (Putra in Hindi). But in historical terms it was built as a fort by King Ajatsatru to prevent the Licchavis soldiers from attacking and harassing the people of Patliputra. In its early days it was built as a fort for the Magadh soldiers to rest. When a Magadhan soldier planted some roses near the camp it came to be known as "Kusumpur" (rose is kusum in Hindi).
