Overview

Visit the Dindigul Fort also known as the Dindigul Malai Kottai which is a 17th-century majestic hill fort. Built by Madurai Nayak abd situated in the town of Dindigul, the fort was built by the Madurai Nayak king Muthu Krishnappa Nayak in 1605. In the 18th century the fort passed on to Kingdom of Mysore (Mysore Wodeyars).

Dindigul city derives its name from a portmanteau of "Thindu" a Tamil word which means a ledge or a headrest attached to ground and "kal" another Tamil word which means Rock.

During the reign of Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan the fort was of strategic importance and in 1799 it went to the control of the British East India Company during the Polygar Wars. As you stroll around, you see an abandoned temple on its peak apart from few cannons sealed with balls inside. In modern times, the fort is maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India and is open to tourists.
