We started our ride from our hotel room to palakkad fort which was only 3 kms.
The Palakkad fort was surrounded by water channel around the fort. This fort is also known as Tipu’s fort and it is located in the heart of the Palakkad town.
The entry is free for visitors. The fort was built by Hyder Ali(1717-1782), the emperor of Mysore now part of Karnataka state.
Inside the fort there is small hanuman temple , sub jail and Martyr’s column can be seen.
We can experience the beauty of the entire fort by going to the top of the fort. The lush green gardens make the fort even more beautiful to view from a distance.
