Landmark · Tourist Spot
Explore the fortifications built by Tipu Sultan of the Mysore in 1792 to ward off the British invaders at Manjarabad Fort. Observe the clear view of the surroundings all the way to the Arabian Sea from an elevation of 988 m (3,241 ft). The fort is unlike any other fort in Karnataka due to its star-shape which differs from the local standard of square forts. Explore the old armory, barracks, and stores built with fired bricks, and the walls which are made of granite stones and lime mortar. It is rumored to have an underground tunnel to another fort 80 km (50 mi) away. You need to climb the stone stairs to reach the fort.

  • A place that is built different.. It was used as a place to hold prisoners.. The view from the top of the wall is astonishing.. Except for the intensity of sun, we had a good time spent there, you can play with your camera. Best place to do so.. Silhouettes wide angle shots will elevate the fort better.
