Nice View

Nothing special to see here but it is the gateway to go Tannabhavi Beach. View around the place is nice.

Sultan Battery alone is a vanilla place with a small fort overlooking the Gurupura river (which soon merges into the sea). More of a transit point to catch a ferry across the river to reach Tannirbhavi beach on the land strip in front.

Asking around I found out where I should get the local bus out to Sultan Battery. The bus dropped me right at it. I looked at it, photographed it, had a chai and got back on the same bus five minutes later. It is a gun emplacement starting to get a weed problem. Not worth the effort.

Its an old structure which looks as if it is lying abandoned. Beautiful views can be captured when you go up the structure. Just a flying visit is enough. One should visit tannirbhavi beach along with this because the ferry for the same sails from here only.

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..

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.
