Guidabande is a 17th century fortress in southwestern India. It's situated in an inland part of the state of Karanataka, the next-to-southernmost of the states along the country's western (Indian Ocean) coastline. It is a near-copy of another fort called Madhugiri located nearby. The seven-level fort is built on a hilltop with a commanding view of the surrounding countryside. In this video, you'll get a bird's eye view of the mighty fortress, which was built by a local chieftan and which is topped by a temple.
