Description:
The Manora fort is situated 65-km away from Thanjavur, Tamilnadu, India. The fort was built by Maratha ruler Serfoji II in 1814-1815 to commemorate the successful advance of the British over Napoleon Bonaparte. It is an 8-storied, hexagonal tower, which is 230-meters high overlooking the Bay of Bengal. The fort derives its name Manora, from the word "Minaret".

In December 2004, five monuments including the fort were damaged in the Indian Ocean Tsunami.
