Sultan Batthery (now a days popularly called as Sultan Battery) is actually a watch tower constructed by Tipu Sultan and is situated about 4 km from Mangalore City in Boloor. Built in black stones, it gives the impression of a miniature fortress with its arrangements for mounting cannons all-round. The main intention for building this watch tower was to prevent British warships entering Gurpur river. From here one can take a boat ride to cross the river and reach the shores of Arabian Sea on the other side.
