  • All those who have visited forts in North India would be disappointed. It a small fort, nothing great, but its not far from the main town. So do go, if you have time.  more »
  • A Run down property and not worth visiting. The Govt needs to do something to this otherwise old building.  more »
  • The Fort is located at the entrance to Madikeri. However nothing spectacular about it. Poorly maintained and very small.  more »

  • Good place for time pass in the evening. Kids will love the large play area. Nothing much to see except the historic fort. Evening walk around the fort walls will be relaxing...
  • It's old and unique. Can spend good family time for about 2 hrs exploring here. Don't miss to go to the museum and check out some cool stuff there
  • It's basically a government office now, but it's worth seeing the architecture if you wanna see olden days warfare and fort construction...also considering that artillery was at its infancy those days. It's a calm place to spend time and stroll.
  • A fort in the middle of the city. Not a huge one. You can drive right inside the fort. Good for a small stroll. Visit the museum if it's open.
  • Nice place to visit in rainy season.. it have museum, library, and temple inside the fort. Had a nice and informatic time at the fort
