Traditionally held impregnable, this ancient hill fortress in Chikkaballapur in Karnataka, served as a vantage point during the clashes with the British army of Cornwallis, specially the one held on 19 October 1791, the most memorable  incidents of the first war against Tipu Sultan of Mysore. From this height, the 2000-foot drop, Caleld Tippu’s Drop, can be observed where condemned prisoners were thrown off the cliff.
