Commonly known as Tipu’s Fort, the gigantic Palakkad Fort is located in the heart of the city. The glorious attraction of Kerala, Palakkad Fort woos tourists with its mesmerising architecture. Built by Haider Ali in 1766 AD, the fort campus houses Hanuman (Anjaneya) Temple, which will surely leave you spellbound with its unique interiors. Rising above a tiny hill, historians say that the colossal architecture was built as a purpose of improving communication between Palakkad and Coimbatore. Today this Fort is a protected monument under Archaeological Survey of India. The sober majesty of the Fort walls reminds one of the old tales of valour and courage. Presently, the fort is serene, filled with art and offers the spectacular view of the surrounding area.
