Vellore Fort - Review

Regarded as one of the best historical monuments in Vellore, the fort is well-known and visited by the locals and people from neighbouring cities.

Built in the 16th century, the fort possesses grand ramparts, a huge moat (which protected it from intruders) and masonry. The ownership of the fort passed from one ruling dynasty to another. In fact, Tipu Sultan was held captive there. A fascinating aspect of the fort is that it houses a Church, a Mosque and a Temple. It is well-maintained by the government.

The intricate carvings and granite-based edifice makes the monument stand out for its architecture. A gallery housing some ancient artefacts is also a must-visit for tourists who double as history buffs.
