  • Very nice and a huge fort...the premises are well maintained and clean..if you go on a cloudy day you will enjoy a lot.. many places to explore here but not much written information regarding the history of them..hire a guide if you want to know about the significance of each structure here..will take around 4 hours to thoroughly go through all the bits here..But it will be time well spent..there are shops inside to buy some snacks and soft drinks inside so don't worry about that...if you are from Bangalore it is a nice 1 day trip..
  • Rich in history. Great place for people who love to learn about history. My suggestion is to hire a guide in order to appreciate the significance better. Mornings/Evenings are ideal time to visit. Noons are bound to turn hot. Fantastic place for landscape photography as well.
