Located in the modern day Krishnagiri
district of the state
of Tamil Nadu
, the Kenilworth Fort is situated in the Hosur region. Also known as the Kenilworth Castle because of its architectural similarities to the original Kenilworth Castle in England, the Kenilworth Fort is probably the only Indian fort
that resembles an English castle.
The Kenilworth Fort was built sometime between 1859 and 1862 by the collector of Salem, Mr. Brett, on his wifes request. The fort was constructed as the residence for the collector and his wife and hence was sometimes referred to as the Bretts Fort. The Kenilworth Fort was later purchased by the British
government in 1875 but is currently in ruins.
