Bijapur Travel Guide

The attractive city of Bijapur is placed in Karnataka in South India. It is renowned for the many historic wonders that dot the city. The history of the city goes back to the 11th century when it was established by the Chalukya dynasty. They cited to it as Vijayapura. It was since the 14th century that the city was being named Vijapur or Bijapur when it came under the Bahamani sultanate of Gulbarga.

The city was assumed by the Adil shah dynasty in the 15th century. Much of the city’s greatness belongs to the monuments that were constructed during this period. After India’s independence the place became part of the Bombay state but it was restored to Mysore in 1956.

The city constitutes people of both Aryan and Dravidian descent. Most of the city's population is Hindu Lingayat. There are very few Christian and Muslim communities in the region. There are several world famous locations in the city such as the following: Gol Gumbaz, one of the greatest domes in the world, Ibrahim Rauza, an architectural marvel, Jumma Masjid, the largest mosque in the area, Malik-e-Maidan, the largest medieval cannon in the world. There are many more equally brilliant structures like Asar Mahal, Chand Bawdi, Gagan Mahal, Barakaman and Upri Buruj. Besides these the city also has several sprawling gardens.
