The little fort makes up the focal point of Palakkad's History, with the beloved nickname of Fort Town bestowed upon by the townsfolk. The ramparts don't exactly have a birds eye view, and the dry moat caters to wild flowers and some growth of hyacinth during the monsoons, nevertheless, the fort is imposing to look at. the grounds and walk...

Interesting history but you would not know it from a visit, needs a lot more information. Be wary of guides offering services, we hired one who's knowledge was limited to "this is a temple" Like most attractions in India, poorly maintained etc Summer palace is marginally more interesting but sad to see it crumbling away.

Anjaneya temple is the only attraction in this fort. No other thing we cant see here except the surrounding compound wall. Near by children's park is useful and very good for children s. Nice place

Visitor information is just adequate, nothing more. All in all, just a bit boring. Exhibits need sprucing up and something done to hold one's interest.

This is a very agreeable place. The fort has been well-renovated and is pleasant to walk around. There is a small archaeological museum which is worth seeing. Overall, we spent an enjoyable 30 minutes or so here: worth seeing if you're there, but not worth a detour.

I'm a bit of a fort buff and this hit all the buttons for me, but what was a surprise was the landcaped ineterior of the fort with cottages, outhouses and beautiful flowering trees and shrubs. I spent an hour under a tree with my book and it really was the highlight of my stopover in Palakkad - If only... More

As mentioned by the others this is indeed a landmark of Palakkad and its almost impossible for you to miss this due to its central location.Unlike the other forts I have been, there is nothing much to see or mention about the architecture here.But its undoubtedly a haven in the heart of a chaotic town like Palakkad with lush green...

The landmark of our mother town Palakkad. Old fort of Tipu sultan. Earlier most of the Government office's were put up inside the fort and later most of them shifted to the newly constructed Civil station building. Not much to see or experience than spending the evenings or walking around in the morning. Hanuman Temple , inside the fort is... More
