Kittur Rani Channamma Memorial Museum, Kithur

Kittur is a famous principality and its queen Channamma Rani very bravely fought the English. Thanks to the unstinted interest of the then Minister for Education Sri S.R. Kanthi, a museum to commemorate the famous queen of this small principality of Karnataka came into existence in 1967. This museum is also of regional importance. The museum fortunately has a building of Its own situated within the ancient fort of Kittur, a few yards away from the remains of the Palace of Kittur. The museum has specimens of armoury, coins, sculptures and inscriptions. The Kittur Rani Channamma Memorial Committee has donated a land in the adjoining area within the fort itself for the construction of a building for this museum.
