Lonely Planet review
Only a couple of buildings remain from this 15th-century fort , 14km west of Tirupathi. Both the Rani Mahal and the Raja Mahal, which houses a small museum , were constructed under Vijayanagar rule and resemble structures in Hampi’s Royal Centre. There’s a nightly sound-and-light show , narrated by Bollywood great Amitabh Bachchan. Buses for Chandragiri (Rs. 6) leave Tirupathi train station every half-hour. A prepaid taxi is Rs. 400 return.
