One of the most perfect specimens of military architecture in South India is the Vellore Fort. Its exact date of construction has not been established, owing to the absence of proper records. However, close examinations of the stone inscriptions suggest that the fort may have been built during the rule of Chinna Bommi Nayak (1526 to 1595 A.D).
