The Bidar Fort in Karnataka is a beautiful creation of the then ruler of Karnataka which is surrounded by a triple-moated wall. It is constructed out of red rock and had an intricate battlement and a baronial gateway. If you ever visit the Fort, you will get to see the crumbling ruins of the bastions and gates. Other features of the Bidar Fort at Karnataka are the royal baths and spacious kitchens, a large audience hall and wide pleasure-pavilions, all in a state of ruin. But this grand edifice still stands the ravages of time as a silent tribute to the past glory of the Bidar Kingdom.


The Rang Mahal of the Bidar Fort of Karnataka has intricately carved beautiful wooden pillars. You will be amazed to see the wonderful tiles that are engraved with Persian couplets. The exquisite mother-of-pearl inlay work in the Bidar Fort is really worth seeing. There is a Madrassa of Khwaja Mahamud Gawan adjacent to it. The madrassa is an Islamic seminary constructed by the prime minister of the Bahmani court, Khwaja Mahamud Gawan.

Narasimha Swami Temple is known to be a Sacred Temple for a Hindu devotee. This water cave temple virtually runs into a cave with water measuring 300 meters. The temple is a powerful deity of Lord Narasimha as per the belief where one has to wade through water up to chest height to have darshan of the idol. It s a thrilling experience to travel through the cave as there is natural water within it. The bats and owls sitting on the roof top of cave are harmless to the devotees. The place is surrounded by picturesque valley.
