Overview

Do you love history? Love the thought of wandering amongst the forts and ruins of great rulers of the past? Chennarayana Durga is a fort situated on a hilltop near Madhugiri which is nearly 100kms from Bengaluru. At a height of 1,188 meters, this place is perfect for history fanatics as the stolid granite of a hill fort has borne witness to the rise and fall of several empires. Built by the not so well-known King of Madhugiri, the fort was later handed over to the Marathas. According to history, the Mysore Wodeyars and the Marathas continuously fought with each other for the possession of the fort and it kept being passed back and forth till the third Mysore war when the British gained control of the fort. Shortly after, the British abandoned the beautiful fort.

Over the years several attempts have been made by both the locals and the travelers to hunt down any treasure that might have escaped the hands of the rulers who conquered the fort at different times.  Even though luck has never favored the treasure hunters, the never-ending enthusiasm, and hope of finding the treasure inspires them to go back again and again.
