A beautiful landscape for a professional tourist. Nearer to CMC (Christian Medical Collage) . Early morning trip is romantic.

It is an old fort to protect the city. Now its under Indian Govt archaeological dept. It a popular spot for local and outsiders also to view a beautiful sunset.

i wish i had the time to see it all, i could only manage seeing the temple in there. it was a good one. felt good being in there. cant say why thou.. you may want to give this one a try. just a note - carry water when you are travelling in summer, you may get de-hyderated

The fort is located in the center of the vellore town. The best time to visit is early morning or in the evening as the day time would be very hot. There isn't much to see in the fort other than the fortified wall and the Temple inside. The museum can be visited if you have some extra time.

This place is fine to have a dip into history.. Most of the place on the fort is closed for public use.. It's advisable to carry water as there is no shops inside...
