Top Places To Visit in Chitradurga 13 Spots
Chitradurga is famous for the historical Chitradurga fort which is really humongous and offers a great deal of knowledge about the different dynastic rulers(Though I didn't focus much on that part:P). Entry Fee: Rs 25 per person.Fortunately, we also got an opportunity to have a glimpse of the Monkey Man of India. He was climbing the huge walls within seconds and without any support.One thing I would specifically mention is to beware of the monkeys there as they are very mischievous(Few incidents happened which made me to write this:D). Below is one of the snapshot:

Tourists can head to Bengaluru’s much revered Mavalli Tiffin Rooms (MTR), for authentic south Indian food and Toit’s, the brick-walled microbrewery for a cold beer.
It's Friday and all I could think of was my next 4 days of pure bliss! Happened to be ethnic day at work so, draped in saree and our usual last minute plans in mind, we were busy hunting for bikes to hire. Everyone was completely booked because of the upcoming long weekend so we decided to try our luck by going down to one of the offices. My friend and I rushed to Royal Brothers in Indiranagar and met the owner and lucky for us he decided to help by giving his personal bikes. Jackpot! I thought as I headed back to work to somehow get through the rest of the afternoon before I could get the hell out of the city! We decided to leave by 6pm so that we could cover a substantial distance before we called it a day. Well, as always, office meetings always happen when you have an important (better) place to be and that's exactly what happened. The meeting went on way past 6 and by the time we went home, packed and huddled up it was 8. After all the formalities and payments we were FINALLY on the road! 2 bikes, 4 friends and 500 odd kilometers ahead of us. So, here's the thing. The plan was Gokarna but different things awaited us. A light dinner and at about 9:30 we were heading out of the city and I was beaming. Cruising through the highway the only sound I could hear was of our bullets. A couple of breaks for smokes, snacks and a lil rest for the back and butt, it was already around 3am as we entered Chitradurga and we were welcomed by rain. Luckily, we found a place to crash on the highway itself and we called it a day.
