Koppal Fort   |   Koppal

Though it is not known who built this fort at Koppal, it is a structure of historic importance as it has seen a number of seizures and re-establishments. Evidence states that Tippu Sulthan built this fort as one of the strongest forts ever, after he acquired it from a Paleyagar in 1786 AD. It was later acquired by the British, who also considered it one of the strongest forts ever built.

The architecture of the fort that lies 400 feet above the plains consists of two forts amalgamated to form one. The summits and gorges encircling the fort make it one of the safest forts in the world.
