Just a li'l fort

Sultan Battery is a way point to the popular Tannirbhavi beach. the battery itself is nothing but a small guard tower of sorts from where you can get a good view of the backwaters.

Sultan battery is one of the best location to roam around. I have been there twice and i really enjoyed the climate food and the localites.. You will really get the real forest feel here. I got pure honey from the forest and some ayurvedic medicines. Localities helped to get nice photographs of the deep forest. I will definitely visit... More

It's a little fort there on the way to Thanneerabhavi beech... When you wait for the boat to cross the river to reach the beach you can take a view of it that's it..

Didnt find anything to be excited about the visit. Yes, there is river and viewpoint. But nothing exciting. There are many other places in Mangalore thats worth your time.

Very close by to the city. You can take a bus to Sultan Battery or the nearest next bus stop lady hill. From lady hill u can either walk or hire a shared auto to Sulthan Battery. Once you reach this, u can go to the beach via a ferry. Its a very beautiful beach and a must visit if... More

The best place on banks of river gurupura to sit down and relax with friends and family. A ferry can help you cross river and take you to Thaneerbhavi, which is a memorable ecperience. Overall a very soothing sand relaxed place.

Folklore has it that Tippu Sulthan had built an underground passage between this fort & the ones he had in Belthangady & Bekal. However these passages are no more accessible. A very small portion of the fort still stands. You can go for a boat ride across the river or indulge in water sports at the Boat club located nearby

The shuttle boat is every 20 - 30 min to the other side where Tannirbhavi beach is. Good for... More

A quiet, serene place, located in the heart of the city, yet away from the noise and humdrum. It has a armoury( which is abandoned). I love the ferry ride from here to Tannir Bavi beach. This is a nice seclude beach with beautiful scenery. A must visit place for all tourists.

This is a worth visiting place for any tourist. There is monument (Fort type) built by Tippu Sultan and this is known as Sultan Battery. This is on the banks of Gurpur river. Nice place to relax on the banks of the river. Local people are very courteous and helpful. Beware: Do not litter around. You are watched by locals
