Kittur: Legacy of Rani Chennamma
Outside the temple there is a structure which leads to the top from where the entire fort could be seen. From there we went to the Fort area which looked a shadow of what would have been a glorious palatial structure. There are boards displaying the area of the fort like hall, kitchen, praying area, etc.
There is a pole star vision room from where people used to gaze at the pole star from the angle at some particular time. There can be a well, and a swimming pool seen inside the complex.
This definitely would have been a fantastic place and had it survived the onslaught of many rulers over the time, we could have got a chance to witness a huge palace with a wonderful architectural design.
How to reach: Bus: From Bangalore, there are direct buses to Belgaum and Dharwad. From these places, Kittur can be reached by bus.
Car/Bike: Head on NH4 towards Tumkur, after Dharwad, on the way to Belgaum, watch out for a board indicating Kittur on the right side.
Food/Accommodation: There is a small hotel for food for breakfast/lunch. For staying, hotels can be booked in either Belgaum or Dharwad.
