A little fort with no proper arrangements for climbing. Elderly and people with disability please skip the place as climbing is no easy. Nothing to see as only the view of nearby places if you climb 2 tier with difficulty. Not worthy in spending time...More

Entry Fee Rs 15, foreigners Rs 150. Camera no charge, parking free. We went there while going to Karaikudi. It’s small fort on the road. If time permits, visit there.

First of all it is very well maintained fort and the shiva temple is simply surreal. It's a huge area. A huge rock is balanced like in Madan mahal fort in MP or Krishna penance in mahabalipuram. It's well connected to dindigul via pudukkottai. Buses...More
