Kanakapura, located among the lush green forests of the state of Karnataka, is a town that is situated in the Ramanagara district. The town is a tourism hotspot and an oft visited tourist favorite in the entire state of Karnataka, as it has something for everyone ranging from avid trekkers to history buffs and architecture enthusiasts. .

Kanakapura is mainly famous for the Kanakapura fort, which was built by Jagadeva Raya. The fort is of great historical significance, but only its remains are present in the town of Kanakapura today, as the fort was burnt down not once but twice. Tipu Sultan, the emperor of Mysore burnt down the Kanakapura Fort, in order to stop the progress of the British Army during the war with the British Empire. The remains of the fort, present near the Arkavathi Bridge, can pique the interest of any tourist with a penchant for historical buildings. .

Tourists can also visit Bananthimari Betta, which is a hill located around three kilometers (3 kms) from the town. The Bananthimari temple, which is present at the base of the hill, is a tourist favorite, and adventure enthusiasts and trekking experts can try their hand at climbing the hill, as trekking is a popular adventure sport in this region.
