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.
