Rain affect! Part of fort wall of Mysuru Palace collapses

1 min read

Mysuru: A part of the fort wall of Mysuru Palace has collapsed, due to the recent rainfall. The fort between Kote Maramma temple and Jayamarthanda Gate has collapsed, with the debris seen from the road.

Mysuru Palace fort which is a century old, is a heritage structure that was built during the reign of Mummadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar in 1800.

The Fort has its own story for the balladeer. Like Kempe Gowda’s original fort in Bangalore, the Mysore Fort was once a small fort of mud walls which were “by no means to be despised, being more effective than any other form of defence” in the fourteenth century, when it was probably built. Its eastern wall was at one time behind the three temples now well within it: Trinayaneswara Swamy and Someswara Swamy.

Raja Wadiyar reconstructed the old fort and later during the reign of Ranadheera Kanteerava it took a new shape.

Later Tipu Sultan downed the fort and took all the materials to build Nazarbad. After the fall of Tipu, when power was restored to Wadiyars with the boy prince Mummadi ascending the throne, the fort was rebuilt in the later years if his rule.
