We reach the fortified wall in about 5 minutes. As we move ahead by keeping the fort wall to ur left and bypassing three bastions we come across a Gomukhi type fort entrance. There are two strongly built bastions on its either sides. The fort wall and its bastions are built in red stones. As we enter the fort we can have a birdís eye view of its entire area. As the main purpose of this fort was for watch keeping there arenít any structures found on the fort. To the west of the fort is Honnur village. The flag mast bastion is on the west side of the fort. Near this there is a path which descends to Honnur village. It is estimated that there could be a doorway here in the past.

The entire fort can be covered in 15 minutes.
