A fortress where Tippu Sultan was born. We can see the ramparts under reconstruction and a will to restore the history of this place. Fortunately, the remains are apparent and can be partially restored.

This place is located on the Airport Road, just 0.5 km from the main road. There is nothing much do explore, and just a few Fort Walls. Takes hardly 10-15 mins to look around. Can be visited once, if driving around this place.
