The place was a mere 900 mt far from our home at Lady Hill, Mangalore. So we would often take a stroll around sultan battery. This place has a historical past where the great Tipu Sultan made a watch tower here on shore of Gurupura river to prevent the Britishers entering the city through the sea. The some parts of... More

One cant make out the place because of the locality as it stands aloof and not very hyped.Once you are there..one feels heaven. A small river front which can be crossed by boat and then the vast stretch of sea ahead on the other side...What a spectacular scenery.

We visited this place on the way back from Mangalore and spend just 30-40 minutes. Its a good place to go for a while. Not a must watch though.

Sultan Battery, known by locals as "BATH-TERRI" is a picnic spot on the banks of the Gurupur river close to Nav Bharat Circle, Mangalore (Rs 50/- one way by auto). It semmed to be a sandstone fortification, which is round shaped with a stair to reach the top,the other gates are locked so could not be seen what was inside.... More

It's a good place to visit with family. It's amazing to watch the sunset from here sitting in front of the river. You can take a boat ride and you also get to drink the local drink toddy.

This place is often confused as a shop that manufactures Batteries :). A place to stress out for college group after long hours of lectures, meetup place for friends meeting after decades, family outing and so on. The place has a historical fort of Tipu sultan which has a secret underground path supposedly reaching Srirangapatnam. The fort is situated besides... More

You have the mainland followed by a river body with an island with a church and finally the open Arabian Sea. One of the best sunset points. Also a small defunct fort of Tipu Sultan can be observed on the land side.

But I'm not sure why - the view of the waterways was pleasant. If you were stuck for time, I'd give this one the swerve, as it's not particularly interesting. For a newcomer to Mangalore, the rickshaw drive there was more interesting.

Its a typical beach of a typical Indian city. People come here with families and kids and have fun in the sand.. However the sea is a bit rough and risky for my taste so won't recommend bathing/swimming here. You can also see a submerged boat here which has some interesting stories floating around.
