MANJARABAD FORT is located just outside of Sakleshpura on National Highway 48. The fort is reputed to have been constructed by Tippu Sultan, the ruler of Mysore as a strategic defensive location as it commands the approach to the plateau beyond Sakleshpura from the coast. It is also believed that he had constructed a tunnel from this fort to another fort in Srirangapattana near Mysore.
