When you hear the word fort, you can imagine grand entrance, humongous structure and intricate designs, which would all be well maintained. I was in for a surprise when I saw the fort for real. The entrance looks grand and beautiful, however, once you near...More

A fortress where Tippu Sultan was born. We can see the ramparts under reconstruction and a will to restore the history of this place. Fortunately, the remains are apparent and can be partially restored.
