About Devanahalli Fort

Known for its historical and archaeological significance, Devanahalli Fort narrates the stories of royalty, wars and destruction. Located 35 Km to the north of Bangalore, it was the birth place of the Tiger of Mysore, Tipu Sultan. The fort sprawls across 20 acres of land and is essentially made of stone. You see small entrances decorated with cut plasterwork in the east and west side of this attraction in Bangalore. There are 12 semi-circular bastions provided with gun points at regular intervals inside the fort. The house where Tipu Sultana and his father Hyder Ali lived is worth seeing here. There are various temples inside the fort including Venugopalaswamy temple, Siddalingeshwara temple and Chandramouleshwara temple that attract religiously inclined visitors. Originally built in 1501, this fort had been under the rule of Gowda kings, the Dalwai of Mysore, Nanjarajaiah, then Hyder Ali and later the Britishers.
