The beautifully constructed Bangalore Fort was initially built as a mud fort in the year 1537 by Kempe Gowda, the chief of the Vijayanagara Empire and the founder of the megacity Bangalore. Gowda had a dream to create a city which would be as beautiful as Hampi and would be a capital city with a fort, temples, tanks or water reservoirs and a cantonment. . So Gowda went on to create a charming city and fortified it with mud. In 1687, the Mughals took possession of the present-day Bangalore city and leased it to Chikka Devaraja Wodeyar, the then King of Mysore in 1689, who further expanded the existing fort. . Almost 100 years later, the fort was renovated and strengthened with stones by Hyder Ali, the father of great warrior Tipu Sultan, also known as the Tiger of Mysore. . History is incomplete without some superstition. According to a famous legend, during the construction of the palace, the Southern entrance gate would collapse no sooner than it was built. The royal priests suggested a human sacrifice as a solution to ward off the evil spirits. . Kempe Gowda, the brain behind the fort, was totally against it. It was when one night his daughter-in-law, Lakshamma beheaded herself with a sword near the Southern gate, that the fort was completed without any further mishap. . #heenaraheja #travelaffairs #chotechotestepstowardsbadebadedreams #bengaluru #bangalore #nammakarnatakaphotographers #bengalurudiaries #bangalorediaries #Karnataka #bangaloredays #karnatakatourism #bengaluru_nodi #bangaloreblogger #travelkarnataka #nammabengaluru #bangalorefoodies #cruisekarnataka #bengaluruadda #bangaloretimes #photography #bangalore_insta #nammakarnataka #bengaluru_diaries #bangalorebloggers #bangalorefashion #bangalorefoodie #namastebangalore #NamasteKarnataka #lbbbangalore

The architectural structure of Bangalore fort is as fascinating as its history ๐Ÿฏ
The confirmed history of the Bangalore Fort is traced to 1537, ๐Ÿงญwhenย Kempe Gowda I, a chieftain of theย Vijayanagara Empire, widely held as the founder of modern Bangalore, built a mud fort and established the area around it asย Bengaluru Pete, his capital.
The structure and the surroundings still remains undamaged โ™ฅ๏ธ

"The existence of many in One, and One in many" Three-fish-with-one-head. I came across this motif while I was wandering around the Bangalore fort and hunting for the frames. There this caught my attention as I had never seen the three-fish-with-one-head symbol before. I have tried to re-create it as an art form. Though my inner critic was not allowing me to post this illustration. Please share your views and any information that you have regarding this. #bangalorefort #motif #Art #Fish #Illustration #Illustrator #artist #travelstories #travelart #inspired #bangalore #traditionalartist #artistsupportartists #illustrationartist #ArtHistory

Bangaloreโ€™s Majestic Fort (This series is an attempt to digitally experience our heritage walks). Hosted by IHW Walk Leader Samrudhi Sridharan @snapgoestheturtle The Bangalore Fort hides in plain sight: the august stone structure goes almost unnoticed amidst the hustle and bustle of KR Market. But it was not always this disregarded. At its zenith, the fort boasted a wide moat and 26 bastions where guards and soldiers guarded the โ€˜Pettahโ€™, or the city. Originally built in 1537 as a mud fort by Kempegowda, the founder of Bangalore, the fort was strengthened by Haider Ali, and his son, Tipu Sultan. It played a pivotal role in the 1791 war between Tipu and Lord Cornwallis, in a battle that saw the loss of 1200 Indian soldiers in six weeks in a decisive victory for the British Army. Of course, the fort has come a long way since then; by 1924, a significant portion was dismantled to build roads and residential units in the area. There are several notable elements in the fort, like the mammoth entryway, with spikes on the entrance doors built to discourage elephants from charging through, and the Ganapati temple built by Kempegowda. The most fascinating one is definitely the small prison on the top. The most famous prisoner held within those walls was the British officer David Baird, who was imprisoned for four years. According to some reports, when Tipu lost his life in a battle against the British, it was David Baird who found his body.
