    " The place was ossssssssm but people are not maintain those places properly. Just a fort like wall structure running around a township of houses. This place is not maintained properly this will not add fun for your trip. "

    " This must have been a big fort; but now what remains is dilapidated walls; unless somebody tells that it was a fort, you would think that it is just another uncared-for dirty place. "

    " The fort boasts of twelve semi-circular bastions, each with a gun-point view and a spacious battlement. The entrances, though relatively small are decorated with cut- plasterwork, and the main attraction is the chief residence of Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan. The memorial is a six foot tall enclosure with pillars. The fort is currently a residence for many as several families inhabit the place. Among the umpteen temples located inside the premises of the fort, Venugopalswamy is the oldest with impeccable architecture and houses several attractive idols of local deities. Other than that, there is Siddheswar Swamy temple, Raghabendraswamy Math, Chandramouleswar Temple etc. Though in a dilapidated and crumbling state with most of the walls covered in graffiti, the fort manages to retain some of the yesteryears’ grandeur and glory. We recommend you to visit the fort if you like old monuments and archaeological places. "

    " A very interesting fort, just past Bangalore international airport and on the way to Nandi hills. Only the walls remain, but one can walk on the walls. There is living town inside the fort walls. "
