During the 14th century all theses forts were ruled by small kings of the region and they were intact and famous. But in 15th century during the invasion of Mugal and British all these forts were destroyed. Dindugal and Namakal forts are the only two which have escaped these invasions and still intact. Sangakiri, Maharajakadai were destroyed partially and not in good condition.
