The Fort of Tipu sultan mainly known as Tipu’s fort or Palakkad fort is located in the heart of the Palakkad district of Kerala. Palakkad is situated on the lower portion of the Sahyadri ranges along the Western Ghats. Tipu’s fort is estimated to be constructed in 1766AD and is now a well preserved fort in south India. The Fort is protected and maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India. The fort is designed in the ancient legendry style and it reminds the old tales of courage and valor. The fort was actually built by the emperor of Mysore, Hyder Ali to facilitate interaction between the Western Ghats and the west coast. Tipu Sulthan, Son of Hyder Ali, was a great warrior and waged series of war against the colonial British rule. He was thus called as the Tiger of Mysore. The fort took his name due to the great encounters of Tipu with British, and later he lost his life on such an encounter.
