Bidar Fort, Karnataka – located 690 Km north of Bangalore and 150 Km north-west of Hyderabad – was built in 15th Century CE by Bahmani kings.
There are 30+ monuments inside Bidar fort – teeming with the stamp of medieval Persian art and architecture.
The University built in 1460s by Mahmud Gawan of Persia is nearby. Chaubara is situated down the same road.
The name Bidar comes from ‘Bidiru’ meaning Bamboo – which must have occupied the place at one point in time.
