  • Consists of beautiful temples within the structure
  • Was one of the zones of the Mysore War


Devanahalli Fort is located at a distance of 30 km from Bangalore. The fort was built in 1501 by Mallabairegowda and later came under the possession of Hyder Ali and his son Tipu Sultan.  The fort has 12 semi-circular bastions at regular intervals. The entrances, decorated with plaster work, are spacious enough for the horses to pass through. The birthplace of Tipu Sultan is located near the Devanahalli Fort. This fact is etched on a plaque erected near an enclosure. The fort also houses the residence of Tipu Sultan and Hyder Ali. Khas Bagh, the area surrounding the enclosure, has a dried up stone pond that includes banana, tamarind and mango plantations. Some of the well known ancient temples like Venugopalaswamy temple, Siddalingeshwara temple, Chandramouleshwara Temple and Nanjundeshwara temple are located inside the fort. The city's temperate climate facilitates visits at any time of the year.

More than 300 Happy travellers

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
