Devanahalli Fort is located 38 kms north of Bengaluru, Karnataka.
The fort was built in 1501 CE by Malla Byre Gowda, a chiefton under Vijayanagara empire, and re-inforced by later rulers of the area. Ultimately it came under British in 1791 CE.
The fort is spread over an area of 20 acres. Venugopalaswamy temple built in Vijayanagara style is prominent amongst the few temples that are inside the fort.
An easy outing site for Bengaluru residents!
