The fort was built centuries back yet has an attraction. The architecture is truly awesome. Roads leading to the destination are not so good.

Sharana Basaveshwara Temple

Reviewed By Deepa J

I am a native of Gulbarga!!Have said that Sri Sharanabasaveshwara Temple or Appana Gudi in local language, is a a part of my childhood .. the temple is dedicated to Saint and Social Reformers Sharana Basaveshwara.. it is located at the heart of the city and is easily accessible through public transport or even auto rickshaw.. the temple complex is beautiful and except for Mondays, the Darshan is fairly quick.. the temple has a heritage of free meals called Dasoha , especially during the yearly fair which is celebrated for two weeks until the Hindu spring festival and new year called Ugadi.. the yearly fair is a colourful affair with stalls of all sort of things right from house hold goods to eateries and rides for kids.. Every Monday you get to see people feeding the poor..
Very near to the temple is Appa Park or Sharanabasaveshwara park along the fAppa lake it has a small entry fee and hosts some nice rides, a disco dance outdoor space lot of play things like swings and slides and well maintained lawns for a easy day out.. you can take the boat ride too

Buddha Vihar

Reviewed By BantakalDotCom - Udupi, India

In Buddha Vihar there is a hall for meditation which is having Buddha's Statue. There is no entry fee, camera, footwear and people who are in short dress is not allowed to go in. There is also a garden inside Buddha Vihar.
Avoid going there in sunny days or you will certainly burn your feet on a sunny day due to the marble heating up under the Indian sun!

The Haft Gumbaz Tomb

Reviewed By owais384 - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Middle East

Haft Gumbaz, a group of seven tombs (also called Saat (Seven) Gumbaz, situated on the eastern end of the town and on the way to the Khaja Bande Nawaz Darga consists of the tombs of some of the rulers and military commanders of the Bahmani Kingdom (14th – 15th Century AD). There is a small gate through which one can enter the complex. Nice lawns have been setup inside which adds to the serenity of the tombs. All of the tombs are barred from entrance. As I peeped through a couple of them, I did not notice any inner decorations but the outer structure of a couple are good. The plain ones of the early Tughlaq style constructions.
The complex extends from east to west. From the west, Mujahid Shah (third Sultan, 1375-78), and Daud Shah (fourth Sultan, 1378). To the northeast of these are the tombs of Ghiyath al Din Shah (sixth Sultan, 1397) and Shams al Din Shah (seventh Sultan, 1397). To the southeast of these is Firoz Shah (eighth Sultan, 1397-1422), and to the south and northeast there are some anonymous tombs. Most of the tombs are very plain in architecture with a large dome and square constructions.
Some of the structures contain more than one tomb belonging to the wife or children of the Sultan. The tomb of Mujahid Shah is the best looking of the lot having curved designs all around it. It also has an upper level from inside which looks like a balcony. The entrance is intricately carved on plaster. An interesting aspect is the usage of granite in some parts of the construction which clearly look like Hindu style of art. We can infer that some of the monuments were either constructed on the same area as any Hindu structure or stones from any Hindu monument were used in this construction after desecration of the former.
Even though this is a short post, I am ending it here as a logical conclusion. We will visit the Fort and its various aspects in the coming ones.

Chandralamba Temple

Reviewed By manjrekar63 - Mumbai (Bombay), Maharashtra, India

Sannati is located on the banks of the Bhima River in Chitapur taluka of Gulbarga District of Northern Karnataka. Sannati is famous for the Sri Lakshmi Chandrala Parameshwari Temple and the excavations by the Archaeological Survey of India. In 1986, when the roof of the Mahakali temple (sub shrine) in Chandrala Parameshwari temple complex collapsed, it destroyed the idol. However it revealed four Ashokan edicts on the floor and foundation stone of the temple. These edicts were written in the Prakrit language and Brahmi script and one of them was used as foundation of the pedestal for the Mahakali idol. Sannati is also the place where Rishi Markandeya meditated and also composed parts of Markandeya Upanishad. A small temple has been renovated at the place where Markandeya is believed to have sat in meditation. Sannati Chandrala Parmeshwari and Hongunti Hingulambika are family deities of many Brahman and Hindus families of Karnataka, Maharashtra, AP etc. Every year, the Chandrala Parameshwari Devi Mahotsav is held during the Navaratri festival. The temple has a history of nearly 800 years and was renovated in 1985. An important Buddhist site, Kanaganahalli is 3 km from Sannati, which is also on the banks of the river Bhima. It is the place where an ancient Buddhist Mahastupa site was found.

Chandrampalli Dam

Reviewed By Bhavna S - New Delhi, India

We went trekking in the forest in a group - though the trails were easy but the greenery and the view was wonderful. When you reach the top of the hill, you can see the Chandrampalli village on one side, the dam on the other. Its a nice place to sit and relax. You can also go down and around a lake - where we sort of had a picnic.

Manyakheta

Reviewed By hegdenag - Bengaluru, India

This place is 40 kms from Gulbarga (Kalaburgi) towards Sedam. Just before reaching Malkhed (MaLkheda), you will get a narrow bridge across Kagina river, with humps on either side of the bridge. Just before the humps after you cross the bridge, there is a road on the right, a small concrete one. Take that road and just keep going till the end. You will see the ruins of fort which was built by Rashtrakuta, who ruled from this very fort. Most of them have been ruined. One of the tomb can be still climbed though. Part of the fort is also occupied as Muslim Marriage center. HK development authority have started restoration work though.
