This was an interesting visit. Apparently, the Bangalore Fort is a pretty tricky one – there are seven (?) layers, and they are formed like a maze. So you don’t know if you’re supposed to turn left or right, and the odds of anyone getting all seven correctly is pretty low.
The gates also have spikes on them – mainly to scare off elephants charging the doors. And these gates aren’t really the entrances – there’s a small door on the side, that curves through the other side, so that enemies will not see what’s on the other side of the curve.
Overall, if you just go to the place, there’s pretty much nothing there but walls. So please get a guide, and have a bit more appreciation of the place.
Bonus – there’s a not-for-kids shape in this side of the wall:
