  • Cherished under vijayanagara kingdom.The site for fort St.George in Madras was sold by this kingdom to British and the document was signed and sealed here. https://plus.google.com/+ElanghoKrishnan https://m.facebook.com/profile.php?id=705384666179814
  • Had a terrific experience here. Actually not the fort but the way to reach the fort during late evening. The road which leads to this place is pitch dark with hills on the sides.. No proper transportation facility. And the show here is just boring, nothing that interesting.
  • We included Chandragiri fort in our trip for two reasons. 1. This fort museum has till date preserved and kept the original written document, that the ruler of this area gave to the englishmen, to set up a base in the Madras, Fort St.George area. 2. So much hype about this fort by the Andhra pradesh tourism department, about how friendly they have made it for the tourist to come and visit this fort and also how they have made a light and sound show in the evening. Well first there was no display of the written document, though they still have it in their possession, but for certain reasons, they have not put it on display for people to see it. The hype that Andhra pradesh tourism made about this place, was too much, nothing of that sort was there. No light and sound show, No one even to guide you around the place. When we visited we were not allowed to go up the fort area due to security risk. So don't come with huge expectations. But the guide gave us lot of interesting features and news about the area. If you see the photographs you can see the road turning left and right again immediately near the fort area, he says they were done in order to slow down the advancing army so that people can be ready for them. The king used to take his food only after he hears the bell from the tirupati temple which was conveyed to him through a series of bells. (not sure i got that right). Over all not that big and important place to visit, you can just come for a casual half day trip. Tip: Do not even attempt to come to this place or near by places in the night time, the roads are completely pitch dark. In night time, be very careful in the highway, since it is the connecting road to Bangalore, hence pure rash driving by AP bus drivers and the roads have no proper lights also.
  • Nice place to visit,and the night show is amazing ,and I never seemed like this night show anywhere
  • Nice to be here with a. Great greenery and historical items can seen here
