Manjarabad Fort - Sakleshpur, (a Taluk in Hassan district of Karnataka)

Manjarabad Fort is situated about 6.4 Kms from Sakleshpur, (a Taluk in Hassan district of Karnataka). It is visited by a large number of tourists throughout the year. Set at a height of about 3,240 ft. above sea level, this fort is been built during the reign of Tipu Sultan. It is constructed out of stones and mud and it has chambers all around. The name 'Manjarabad' has an interesting story behind it. While inspecting the construction of the fort, Tipu Sultan is said to have observed fog (known in Kannada as Manju) around this place and decided to name this fort Manjarabad .

Manjarabad Fort served as a strategic defensive location during Tipu Sultan's rule as it commands the approach to the plateau beyond Sakleshpur from the coast. It is also believed that there is a tunnel that connects the Manjarabad Fort to another fort in Srirangapattana near Mysore
