History :
      Manikdurga was a part of Vijaynagar Empire. Later Adilshah captured these forts and destroyed them completely, due to which the fort also faded from the memory of the people.
Fascinating Spots :

      On the top we find the temple of Sukai Devi. The remnants are scattered everywhere in the forests. On the water tank we find stone carvings of Yakshas. Due to dense tree cover, we can see birds and butterflies here.
