Situated right opposite to Mayura durga hotel(kstdc). Lots of parrots and peacocks in the fort. Must hire a guide who will explain and take you around and help you understand the place better. Loved the spots and the fort is very well maintained.

Very well maintained fort. Quite a bit of walking required and steps involved all the way... Guide required to get facts of the fort. Best time is around August/September I feel as it's cloudy with nice breeze. Avoid summer season.

A very nice fort to explore in Chitradurga. It's Obavva's fort and has a good history. She had sacrificed her life here. This fort is really worth visiting! Fort is clean and with good views.

A must see place. Better to start early in the morning, else due to hot conditions you will find climbing up tough. Views are fascinating all around. A local guide a must.

You can climb lot of stairs here only to see where you came from. Not very impressive, can be avoided. However, the good part was the cleanliness of the place. Nicely kept.
