Tipu Sultan's Fort, also known as Tashk-e-Jannat, meaning Heaven’s Envy, is one of the frequented sites at the destination. Constructed identical to Dariya Daulat, Srirangapatna, the fort stands atop the hill at an elevation of 4,851 ft above sea level. Highlighting features of the fort are five arches with minarets, exhibiting beautiful art and architecture of ancient era.
Built in 1791 by Chikballapur chieftains, the fort sprawls over an area of 90 acre. The beautiful palace, which is now closed for public, was at once the summer palace of Tipu Sultan. Moreover, walls and ceilings of the fort are engraved with paintings. Elaborately graved towers and archways of the forts draw attention of tourists.
