Manjarabad fort sakleshpur sunset view

Manjarabad located in the sakleshpur town premise itself, just 4km from sakleshpur town. After visiting kadmaney tea estate we rushed to manjarabad fort because we planned to view the sunset from this fort.luckily we reach around 5 and fort will close by 6 that we are not aware so those who are going they can plan accordingly. If you're doing donigal tunnel trekking manjarabad fort is on your way back to sakleshpur.
Now little bit history about this fort,Its constructed by the mugal empire Tipu Sultan with the help of french architects he want to create a unique fort  as he was fighting against british east india company at that time with the help of french army. So this fort constructed in star shape, you will not get that view if you stand near to the fort to get the correct view it should be a helicopter view or view from some adjacent hills

And there is one more interesting fact about  its name, manajarabd means covered by snow or manju in kannada this place used to be covered with snow in the winter time thats why they named it as manjarabad fort.
Another interesting thing is this fort have connectivity to srirangapatana fort which is far by 150km
So if you visiting sakleshpur this historically important  place you should never miss, happy tripping
