Hosdurg Fort

Hosdurg Fort alias Kanhangad fort is an imposing structure located 4km east of Kanhangad town which is around 23kms and 15kms south east of Kasargod town and Bekal fort respectively. Believed to be built by Somasekhara Nayak of Ikkeri dynasty, the fort is surrounded by a high brick wall with round bastions. Although only the ruins of the old fort remain, the legacy of the fort town endures to this day. Within the fort premises, there are several public offices and a temple called Karpooreshwara Temple devoted to Lord Shiva. The internationally recognised spiritual centre, 'Nithyanandashram' is situated on the outskirts of the fort, around 4kms away.
