A very small fort. But what was impressive are the fort walls which are in good condition. And close by is the birth place of Tipu Sultan.

This is a great fort. Although very small it is worth the time. The brick work and structure is really interesting. The grounds are small and well maintained. The streets around are pretty full on with stalls on the pavements.
