The brave queen who ruled for 30 years is a legendary female warrior who is said to have died at the age of 80 while leading her troops into the battlefield. Rudramma added the deep and wide moat surrounding the double wall to add to the defense tactics of the fort. The remnants of the majestic Sahastralinga Temple show four massive torans still standing erect housed in the fort premises.
