Engraving after a drawing by James Welsh, Lieutenant Colonel in the army of the East India Company, published in his ‘Military Reminiscences: extracted from a journal of nearly forty years’ active service in the East Indies? in 1830. Welsh describes the once impregnable fort of Kurmuldroog, or Kurnallah, as twice as inaccessible as Nundydroog (Nandidurga). The fort was later abandoned. In this image, some fortifications are visible around the summit of the hill.
