about manora fort

The stories enveloping the Manora fort, about 65 km from Thanjavur will definitely stir your curiosity. This 8 storey tower was built by Maratha Ruler, Serfoji II and some say that he had hidden treasures in the tower’s maze. The 23 metres tall tower stands alongside a beautiful view of the Bay of Bengal and it is believed that this is where the traders from Sri Lanka and India met. The violent Tsunami waves may have damaged the tower but the legend of the tale of the secret underground passage linking this tower to the Brihadeeswarar Temple still stands strong and attracts a lot of tourists.

For security reasons you will be allowed only up to the second floor of the structure.
