See the remnants of the past embodied in Fort Vellore, a large 16th century fort built by the Vijayanagara kings. Discover a fort which served as the headquarters of the Vijayanagara Empire. Observe the architecture of the keep known for its grand ramparts, wide moat, and robust masonry. The fort hosts three religious temples, the Jalakanteswarar Hindu temple, the Christian St. John’s Church, and a muslim mosque.
