Deccan Herald is reporting that the new District Court Complex at Madikeri will be ready soon, hopefully by April. The current court complex housed in Madikeri Fort, which is in shambles.
The Archaeological Department has been requesting the government since long to shift government offices out of the fort so that they can start conversation and restoration activities at the Fort.
The Fort which also houses the palace is in a debilitated condition. Minor exterior conservation work was done in the past, but the interiors are still in pitiful condition.
