Vizianagaram fort is an early 18th-century modern fort in the city of Vizianagaram in Andhra Pradesh.

It was built by Vijaya Rama Raju, the Maharaja of Vizianagaram in 1713. The fort has two main gates each with elaborate architectural features. There are many temples and palaces within the fort and a victory tower.

A moat is built around the fort.

Two important temples inside the fort are the Hanuman temple, and the Lakshmi temple known as the “Kota Shakto”, which is the guardian deity of the fort. Important monuments are palaces such as the Moti Mahal, Oudh Khana, Alakananda Palace, Korukonda Palace, and, just outside, the victory tower called the “Ghanta Stambham” (Clock Tower).
