Sultan battery is situated in Boloor and is popular for its watch tower. It is believed to have been built by Tipu Sultan and thus the name Sultan Battery. It was built 15 years before the death of Tipu Sultan.
It is completely built of black stone. You can get a fantastic panoramic view of the Arabian Sea and the surrounding places as you stand on the top of the watch tower. Though it is a watch tower but it looks like a big building to store canons. It was basically built to keep a watch on any ships of invaders that crossed the river. It has an underground chamber that was used to store gunpowder. It was later taken over by the British and was also used as a Naval Office.
it lay deserted for many years but slowly the place is gaining popularity mostly among nature lovers as the view from the top gives them pure bliss. It can be expected that it will be a tough competition to the other tourist hotspots. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Mangaluru Itinerary 3 Days.
