About

The Dindigul Fort was built by Muthu Krishnappa Nayak, a Madurai Nayak ruler. This fort is 270 metres tall and almost 3 kilometres in circumference. During its initial construction, it was told to consist of a total of 48 rooms that were capable to house soldiers, commanders, and prisoners of war. Built on top of a hill, the southern portion of this fort has never had the need for man-made protection due to its steepness. Explore the intimidating and breathtaking double-walled fortress structure.
