When we reached Chitradurga on a fine evening during our visit to the place for a friend's wedding. We had not much information about the place when we arrived there as we have not heard about the Chitradurga fort before. But, we decided to have a look of it. We were a bit apprehensive in the beginning but when we reached to Chitradurga fort, all our worries vanished.
 

Chitradurga is a well known place in Karnataka. Someone looking for tourism in Karnataka will find Chitradurga fort as one of the top destinations which is 200 km from Bangalore city and is easy to reach by road. This Fort  is also called as 'Kallina Kote' (Stone Fort). The region is closely associated with Mahabharata. Chitradurga fort witnessed history from the period of Chalukyas empire.

This fort was built and expanded by different rulers such as Chalukyas, Rashtrakutas and Hoysalas but the golden era of this fort was between 14th to 18th centuries.

 

I am sharing a small picture log of my visit to this place.

Nice post sire. My home town :) May be you guys visited during the months of April / May.. So hot and sweaty.. Phew.

It would at least take half a day to walk this whole fort. Its very vast in area and good place to explore :) Great maintenance of the heritage site by the Karnataka Govt.
