Bangalore Fort

Saturday, December 11, 2010

This fort is situated opposite the City Market in Bangalore.

Main Entrance to the Fort
Built by Kempe Gowda, the founder of Bangalore in the 16th century, it was initially built of mud and later converted into stone by Hyder Ali in 1761. It was beautifully carved with Islamic style arches, minarets and paintings.

Side view of the Fort
Sadly I could not see this fort from the inside as it is closed to the public.
