Dindigul Fort was built during 16th century by Madurai Krishna Muthappa Nayakkar kings. Later it changed hands to Hyder Ali and then to British.
It is a large fort spread across 2.745 square kilometers and has a height of 900 feet. There is also a small pond above the fort.
There is also a small hindu temple on top, which is now abandoned. Now the fort is in ruins and is under the care of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). It is interesting to note that Dindugul is the border region for Pandya, Cholas as well as for the Chera kings.
