Susunia is a hill (1,200 ft). It is a place of archaeological interest and a rock climbing centre.

It is believed that there earlier was a fort built by King Chandravarman. Some 4th century inscriptions are there, referring to a place called Pushkarana, once the capital of King Chandravarman. Modern-day Pakhanna, a village in Bankura district, is considered to be ancient Pushkarana. Some animal fossils were discovered at Susunia.

There is an ancient carved monolith (Narasingha stone) standing at the point where the spring water is coming out of another curved stone projected spout.

It is a picnic spot for people residing in the surrounding areas.

It is 10 km North-East of Chhatna which is 13 km from Bankura town on the Bankura-Purulia road. Those who are coming from Durgapur or along NH 2 can cross Durgapur Barrage and turn right at Barjora morh to get on to the Bankura-Purulia road. It is about 270 km from Kolkata.
