If you are visiting Vellore, you are bound to pass this fort. The fort premises have a lot to offer, including the fort itself, a small lake outside the fort, a very old Shiva temple, a museum, and much more.

one of the biggest attractions in town. Do give a visit if you drop by, skip the museum and walk on the edge of the fort. More pleasant in the evening

We went to see the fort recently and there was not much to see. There is no information on what to do/see. We took some pictures and left.

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

It is a very nice and historical place. One should visit the fort when you are visiting the temple inside the fort. Best time would be morning or evening. Never miss this along with temple in Vellore.

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