Vellore fort is quite old and underdeveloped. Small lakes around it add to its grandeur. Nice place to hangout once in a while.

For whom who like Historical Places. So many things of History. And also You can Understand the Mentality of the old Kings. See all the things thoroughly. Best time to Go this Place is after 4-30 Pm. And also a very nice place to take Pictures or Videos.
