Huthridurga is situated about 65 km west of Bengaluru in the state of Karnataka, in Kunigal taluk, Tumakuru district. It is situated off the Kunigal-Magadi state highway, at a distance of about 7 km from it and 10 km from the Anchepalya industrial area.





It was built by Kempegowda in the 16th century CE. Ruined fortifications are still visible on the two hillocks surrounding the village. Historically, Huthridurga Fort was the military bastion of Tipu Sultan against the British, which was conquered by the latter in 1791. It is believed to have been a seven tiered fort and is considered one among the nine "Durgas" (fortified hills) around Bengaluru ("Nava Durgas"). It has a small temple dedicated to Shiva known as the Shakareshwara temple, a Nandi idol on the top of the hill and an Anjaneya temple, midway. The Aadi Narayanaswamy and Veerabhadra temples are situated in the village.
