  • Very simple. Well maintained and preserved. Housing big trees with bright orange flowers. 2 temples, 1 devoted to Lord Shiva. Has Guard posts intact now also. Has 2 Big canons. Stone manuscripts adorn the courtyard. Must visit for peaceful outing.
  • It's an old fort and hasn't been maintained by the authority. One of the tourist spot in Coorg. But there isn't much things to see. A good place to get clicked with a vintage background. You can see the city from the top. There's a museum and a church near by.
  • Its a good place to visit once if you are in Coorg. The fort has its old charm and a temple which is nice. Liked it
  • It's not big but it's good. U would have good time having photoshoot here and very good place to spend some time with children and family, hardly takes 30to roam around this thing
  • No much sight seeing. It is just a fort with simple entrance. A very old Bungalow is situated inside which is now being used as a govt office. Only amusement is old church now being used as a museum. Museum is worth watching.
