Fort of Chitradurga

The fort of Chitradurga is the first and major landmark that comes to mind for travellers when the name of this district is spoken. This powerful stronghold is designated as a “Giridurga,” or hill fort, since it has seven concentric ramparts. This hill fort, which has seven pinnacles, is known as “Chinmuladri.” It has seven ranges that surround a central hill known as “tuppada kola,” which has Hidimbeshwara hill and Shivalaya hill to its east and northeast directions, Kahalebatheri hill to the west, and Lal-batheri and Nallikayisiddappa hills to the south. To the north of this hill are the Jandabatheri and Bhimanabatheri.

Vani Vilasa Sagara

The Vani Vilasa Sagara dam is a popular tourist attraction in the area. Before independence, the Maharajas of Mysore erected a dam on the Vedavathi River near Marikanive. It is 20 kilometres away from Hiriyur and 60 kilometres away from Chitradurga. From one side of the dam, it seems to be an Indian map.
