Bangalore Fort

Situated opposite the City Market, Bangalore Fort was originally built in mud by Kempe Gowda, the founder of the present-day city, in the early 16th century. The fort was later fortified by Tipu Sultan after being handed it back by Lord Cornwallis in 1791. It is noted for the beautifully carved Islamic-style arches, minarets and paintings. There is an ancient Ganapati Temple and dungeon within the area of the fort and this is all that remains of the fort today.

Open: 9am-6pm.
