It was originally constructed by Vijaynagar Empire. This fort standing amidst mountains was captured by many rulers among them Tipu Sultan is the notable one. There are many interesting features of this fort that can still give chills down the spine. Can anyone share those facts?

The Jalakandeswarar Temple within the fort is a superb illustration of Vijayanagar architecture.
