JAG DEO, AND WARRANGUR, HILL FORTS IN THE BARRAMAH'L.

Jag Deo, and Warrangur, are two of the twelve Hill Forts, or Barramah'l, which were in the possession of the late Sultaun Tippoo; these are of the lesser class, but, like most of the hill forts, are strongly fortified quite to their rocky summits. The approach to them being extremely difficult, they were considered as very strong situations; but were, nevertheless, given up to the English in one thousand seven hundred and ninety-two, without resistance. These forts are distant from Kistnagherry, eastward, about seven miles.
