  • This is a nice historical place. Although most of the fort is in ruins and everything is locked, yet by visiting this fort one can understand the majesty of the fort in its sunny days. This is a very huge fort in terms of area. Need lot if time to explore its beauty. It is situated on the edge of a plateau. While visiting the place don't miss to admire its architecture. Loved it
  • 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.
  • Lost Heritage.. Nothing is there..We are not accepted to enter inside the fort as it is totally damaged.But we can just have a visit outside the fort,compound, and all other places surrounding... Greatness of engineers during the time of Bahmani kings will be found here. It's like a reference guide for many Indian ports like Golconda,Etc..
  • The Fort might be obviously grand and huge once and it is surely visible till today but due to lack of attention towards it the fort is losing its charm. Still u cn enjoy roaming there and click few good pics with the demolishing fort in the background. Also there is a small museum within the fort campus and its worth visiting the museum. Its free of cost :P
  • I decided to make this place an addition to our long trip to Karnataka and Maharashtra and wow this place was amazing. The fort is being preserved and repaired. The area accessible was worth the visit in itself. So much history to learn.
