Shivaganga Fort
The quadrangular Shivaganga Fort, Southwest of the old City, was built by the nayakaruler, Sevappa Nayaka, in the mid-16th century. Its battle mented stone walls, which enclose an area of 14 ha (35 acres) are surrounded by a partly rock cut moat. The Square Shivaganga Tank in the fort was excavated to provide drinking water for the City. The fort also contains The great Brihadishvara Temple, Schwartz Church, and public amusement park.
