Chitradurga fort built in stages between 11th and 15th century CE, is located 200 km north-west of Bengaluru.
A moderate climb to different parts of the fort would take us through a number of gates, multiple ramparts, temples, granary, gym, treasury, halls, conference area, couple of (water) reservoirs and the famous Obbava kindi. The adventurous could try climbing up to the security watch point on top of the rocky hill.
A number of inscriptions from the periods of Chalukyas, Hoysalas and Vijayanagara kings have been found in and around the fort. These inscriptions trace the history of the fort back to 3rd century BCE.
Definitely a place where the history lives!
