Manjarabad Fort is 125 Kmts from Mangalore.
Manjarabad fort is a star fort built in 1792 by Tipu Sultan the then ruler of Mysore on the pattern of the military forts developed by the French architect Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban. It is in the Hassan district in the Indian state of Karnataka.
The fort is located 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) away from the Sakaleshpura town to its south west, which is on the right bank of the Hemavati River, 23 miles (37 km) from Hassan on the National Highway no 48 that runs from Bangalore to Mangalore. Sakaleshpura is the headquarters of Manjiraba taluk and is a municipality.
Since the fort is located on a hill at an elevation of 988 metres (3,241 ft), it gives a clear and commanding view of the surroundings. On a clear day, even the Arabian Sea can also be seen from the fort.
