Sultan Battery, Mangalore

Enjoy views of scenic backwaters from Sultan Battery, the only material reminder of Tipu Sultan’s empire dismantled by the British. Built in 1784 on the headland of the old port to control the estuary of the Gurupura River, the fort features thick black stone walls overlooking the beach and the sea. Explore mounting places for canons and an underground storage area for gunpowder. Get a panoramic view of the Arabian Sea and take a stroll along the beach with few shacks and a boating house.

Where to stay in Mangalore

Mangalore offers a diverse set of accommodations to its visitors, focusing on the city center and the coast. Look north of the central train station for the widest choice in town, where some luxury options line the more prominent boulevards, and a wealth of budget hotels cater to shoestring travelers. Along the coast, some characterful old hotels cluster around the port, and a couple of hotels put you right on the sands of the beaches.
