Makali Durga: The Flying Fortress

Saw this fort during a Delhi-Bangalore flight while in a holding pattern around Bangalore’s Devanahalli Airport. Luckily, the plane did not take a circuitous route from this hillock to the runway so I was able to remember the directions to the fort.

This also a good opportunity to point out two other forts in the area.
