  • A fort that every one has to visit, very vast and jaw dropping constructions all over. Maintenance was very nice, facilities for food, stay were fine too. There was a restaurant inside the fort area which offers lot of food options besides decent prices. Plan on a mild sunny day and you will thoroughly enjoy it. Browse through wiki and roam there instead of hiring a guide.
  • 1.) Free Entry 2.) Free parking 3.) Free visit to Museum (Which is inside Fort) 4.)Try to visit after 4 pm or just before sunset 5.) Canteen is there with over charged snacks. 6.) Better than Golconda Fort of Hyderabad
  • Being a Bidrian all I can say is this fort is one of the most awesome places to visit in Bidar.
  • Bidar fort is the one of the famous and oldest fort in india, built by Ala-ud-din Bahman of Bahmani Sultanate in 1424
  • Free entry into a historic fort that covers a vast area, but that's about it. All the buildings were under lock and key, with grills barring the doors and windows. It's a long walk around under the hot sun, with very little to show for it. There's a small museum by the entrance where one is forbidden from even photographing the information boards. A sad state of affairs for whoever that manages the people's heritage. Shameful! It gets two stars because the site transcends the one-star (or should that be zero) planning.
