The Madikeri Fort is a popular attraction in Coorg in Karnataka. Situated in the centre of Madikeri town, the majestic fort offers tourists insights into the history of Coorg. The elevated structures of the fort also provide panoramic views of the town.
This ancient fort was first constructed in the latter half of the seventeenth century by Muddu Raja, the ruler at the time, on the occasion of declaring Madikeri as the new capital of Coorg. The possession of this fort passed through various hands after it was captured by Tipu Sultan. Consequently, there occurred significant changes in the structure and design of the fort as well, the most major ones being made by the British. Presently, the Madikeri Fort houses the office of Madikeri's Deputy Commissioner, as well as other objects of interest to the visitors. These include life-sized elephants at the entrance, a museum, important artefacts and portraits.
