#1 of 6 things to do in Palakkad

The Palakkad Fort or the Tipu Sultan was built in 1766 AD by Hyder Ali. Kota Maidanam is the large ground between the Fort and the Palakkad Town Hall, which was once used as a stable for Tipu Sultan's Army, but now is used for hosting cricket matches., exhibitions and public meetings. Also, an open air auditorium called "Rappadi", is located within the premises of the Fort and a children's park, along with the Palakkad Special Sub Jail, all within the Fort Grounds. A small temple called Anjaneya Swamy Temple and a garden called Vatika-Shilavatika are also maintained inside the Fort. Open all days of the week, it is a thirty minutes to one hour visit around the Fort. The place itself has no entry fees, however the Vatika-Shilavatika Garden inside the fort charges a nominal fee of 10 INR per person and opens up from 5 am to 9 am in the morning and 4 pm to 9 pm in the evening. The Fort remains open the whole day. The place is windy but it is advised that you do not visit the place in the afternoon, as it can become extremely hot and you may not have a good experience. As a whole, the place is peaceful and is among the places you have to visit while in Palakkad.
