Talarigatta Gate


Talarigatta Gate was one of the main entrance points into the urban centre of the capital from the riverside. The main road to Talarigatta (the coracle ferry point near the suspension bridge) from Kamaplapura pass through this arched structure.

The Talarigatta Gate is an arched structure, close to which the coracle ferry passes. This was one of the most important entrances to the empire.

The gate is in a damaged condition. There is a small Hanuman temple close to it. The Talarigatta Gate was once used as a toll gate, during the period of the Vijayanagara Empire. The whole fortification can be seen from the top of the gate.

This largely damaged structure still maintains its original intent, a gateway on the main road. A tiny shrine of Hanuman is located just in front of the gate.
