  • Good place. The place is recommended only for those who loves to see the ancient forts. You will find the hiding places of soldiers inside the fort and holes for shooting. And the you will feel like air conditioning inside the parts of fort wherever stone roof is there. And the fort is now used as the government offices. And government should take some steps towards maintanence.
  • A historic place, great to know our country's past. You can visit with family anytime of the year except June to Sep. Summers are very hit compared to Bangalore reason mass deforestation for construction of hotels resorts. Tourism is good but numbers to be restricted for our future sake. No Forest No Mankind.
