Outdoor- 1

As winter started here the climate is awesome and people are venturing into outdoors. Day before we had a day holiday and couple of friends and families went for a picnic to an old fort in one of the emirates here.



One of the stone houses!! Few decades ago people lived here!



Stair leading to the terrace



Stair( Yes, Wooden poles) leading to first floor



View from the so called palace



Majlis or reception area on the hill top. Look at the approach way and the ancient stone houses without roof.

Came here through your comment on reflections. I had been there too the day before, though did not quite explore a lot. Just clicked some random pics from the entrance point at left, mainly because it was completely deserted and its in such an isolated location! Wonderful to see the photos and know people actually picnic there, you seem to have looked around nicely.

Thanks @ Keshi
Thank you Devika. Glad you liked it.
PS: Its completely a deserted place. After living in concrete jungle, I don’t think we can spend even a full day
Amirthavarshini Amma: Yes, this place is Haraappa for the people here.
