Sultan Battery is home of the famous Tippu Sultan's Garrison Fort which acted as a watch tower during the 1700's. The place attracts college-crowd during the evenings. There is a ferry every 10 minutes to TannirBhavi beach which is Fantastic to go!

We enjoyed the view on the beach although there's not much to do here. The place is not crowded so quite peaceful.

Sit by the river under one of the trees and clear your mind. A good place to hangout if you love peace or for quiet deep discussions with friends. Enjoy the sight of the river, the sun set wind and the calm beautiful surroundings.
