   The Fort with Palace
    Built on high grounds with a unique blend of traditional and modern styles of architecture, the Madikeri Fort looms large over the town. Built during the reign of the Haleri Kings, it was rebuilt in the early 19 th century.

In the centre of the Fort is the palace which presently houses various government offices. At the entrance of   the palace stand beautifully sculputred horses holding up the balcony on the entrance wall. Built in European style, the place is said to have secret underground routes. At several prominent places, the initial of king Virarajendra 'V has been etched. As a mark of regret for the brutal killing of the royal elephant by king Viraraja, stone replicas of two mighty elephants are erected to the left of the palace.

The fort also houses a Ganesha Temple, a Chapel and museum that display several royal antiques like weapons, idols, canon, stone carvings etc.
