Description: Also known as Kathingad Fort, this place offers a number of challenges to its visitors. Tung fort was constructed before 1600 CE. This place was built under the supervision of rulers belonging to Adil Shahi dynasty; however for most of the time this fortress remained under the rule of Shivaji. At a given time, the Tung Fort can only hold 200 troops; therefore this fort was mainly used as a watch tower rather than a place to fight war from. From the top of the fortress, a person can get a marvelous view of the surrounding regions. The conical and sharp peak of the fort makes it an outstanding landmark of this region. The fort is adorned by innumerous bastions and a water reservoir.
Activities: Tung Fort attracts the attention of history enthusiasts and photography buffs alike. So if you like visiting historical monuments, then this is the place to mark a visit at. Therefore never miss this attraction while on a trip to the city.
