If you have ever visited Rajasthan forts, Then just forget this one. This place is now government office. You can have only glimpse of side fort walls. Nothing else. Museum has nothing to show. Avoid this place.

You can hardly call this a fort. Visited due to its proximity to the raja seat. Absolutely missable.

The fort and the madikeri museum is close by. Again, like all Coorg tourist attraction, it is not well maintained and does not do any thing to describe its history to the visitors.
