Kamudi fort, Ramnad

Would you love to visit a fort constructed by Sethupathi Kings. This fort is located in the rural tamil nadu - in Kamudi district. From the fort the whole surroundings can be seen clearly.
 The above is an androidyfied ( modified using android photogallery editor!) photo of the fort. So is the below photo, only that contrast has been area of work in it.
 ASI is doing its bit to save the place. You can notice the repair works on the steps, walls etc..

Unless you are a historian you may not long to see this fort. But still in case you make a trip to this part of country you can have a look. To add the details, this fort is said to have been constructed with assistance from a french engineer. Veera Kattabomman stayed in this fort on way to Ramanathapuram.

Uttarpradesh photos

UP is a large and highly populated state teeming with life. The state has a number of fast emerging cities. The narrow lanes clogged with small vehicles, heaps of muck, cattle and dogs occupying the flanks is a common view in many cities. They are also the hub of activity, always enriching us with momentum.
