Well maintained fort in a reachable place. It is just a KM from the place we stayed in Palakkad. You will see turtles in the water ponds surrounding the entrance below the small bridge... You will get to see huge trees around the fort and it was windy when we visited.

One of the best constructions of Tippu Sultan. The Fort mounts all the facilities for a royal family living in secure compound. High raised fort walls, spaces for soldiers, the crocodile water bank around the fort still stands live

This Fort is considered a tourist attraction not only from the imposing structure... More

I went early and walked around the Moat through the beautifully kept gardens across from the Fort . The circuit is open from 5am-8am , it is very pleasant to walk around in the cool crisp morning air with lots and lots of locals . People were very kind and friendly - occasionally some-one would just come out of nowhere... More
