Bangalore Fort

Also Known as 'City 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. It is noted for the beautifully carved Islamic-style arches, minarets and paintings. There is an ancient Ganapati Temple within the area of the fort.

This place is open to the public from 9:00 hrs to 18:00 hrs. Tipu's Palace nearby is also worth visiting.
