This Fort is best of all among those place nearby. The view more amazing then pictures which are available online. This fort is less commercialized and its natural beauty still exists. Hence you must visit this place if you go for Gokarna or near by.

This was recommended to us by the owner of the home-stay at Gokarna. But for the sun (yeah, we made a summer trip), this was a good pit-stop enroute to Om Beach. Entry is free - with a nominal place, this can be better maintained....More

It's a monument recognised as the Heritage monument. Kept Very clean, literally couldn't find a single paper or plastic around it. Very beautiful view of river meeting to sea.
