Gingee

There is an interesting complex of forts here, constructed mainly in the 16th century during the Vijayanagar Empire (though some of the structures date back to 1200 AD). The fort is built on three separate hills, joined by 3 km of fortified walls. The buildings – a granary, audience hall, Shiva temple and a mosque in memory of a favourite general are fairy ordinary, but the boulder-covered mountain landscape is impressive.
