"KAVALEDURGA", a monumental fort built by Keladi Nayaks near Thirthahalli.
"KAVALEDURGA", a monumental fort built by Keladi Nayaks near Thirthahalli. A beautiful place, but being neglected by the local people and department of tourism. But now ASI (Govt. of INDIA) has initiated restructuring of the ruins of palace and three walled fort.
It is at an elevation of nearly 3000 ft. above sea level and within the fort one can see thick forest with sky touching trees. A 18kms. journey from T'halli and 22kms. from Mastikatte in Kondlur road. It is hardly been visited by the tourists earlier. But these days many go there to enjoy the beauty of 400 years old royal palace.
