Gingee Fort Day 1

• It lies in Villupuram district and is one of the surviving forts in the state. This fort is so fortified that the Maratha king, Shivaji named it “most impregnable fortress in India”. The British called it “Troy of the east”. The fort was first built by the Cholas but then modified for security reasons by the Vijayanagra Empire.
