Manjarabad Fort

Manjarabad

Manjarabad fort located 5 km south-west of Sakhleshpur, Karnataka, is a star shaped fort built by Tipu Sultan in 1792 CE with the help of French Architects to counter British forces.

The fort located on a hillock at an elevation of 3,240 feet above MSL gives a clear and commanding view of the surrounding areas.

The name Manjara comes from ‘manju’ meaning fog or mist that used to surround the fort often. This military fort had army barracks, armoury, ammunition, gunpowder stores and related infrastructure.

Interestingly the fort is at just one level in contrast to many forts that usually had multiple level structures.

Located on the Bangalore – Mangalore highway, the fort has an easy access.
