Mirja Fort

While coming from Gokarna (Famous for OM Beach) to Murudeshwara there is a fort on the right called as the Mirja fort. It is pretty unique as it has portugese-islamic style of architecture but has a Hindu deepasthambam (Pillar of light) and an Idol of Durga Devi. It is amazing! It has 3 wells with  60, 80 and 100 feat depth. There is a huge trench that was filled with water during times immemorial. The leader or the king had a secret passage through one of those wells to ensure that his security was a total secret. It is believed to be used for trade purposes. Now it is under the Archeological Department of India. Have a glimpse of it! 😀
