Bhongir Fort:

Sometimes, there are locations that are relative unknowns that are just as amazing and spectacular as those that get applied all over the information and tourist sites. That is why when someone goes on a holiday to some international position, an schedule set by a journey agent or vacationer organization is not always a good option. There is still much to be said about finding less well-known destinations in out-of-the-way places; it harkens returning to enough time when there was miracle in finding something that is relatively low profiled. Case in point: Bhongir Fort in the municipality of Bhongir, in Hyderabad.

The fort is designed upon a single rocky hill in Bhongir, a city in Andhra Pradesh, in the Nalgonda district of the state.. It is situated some 48 kilometers away from Hyderabad. The Western Chalukya leader, Tri-bhuvana-malla Vikram-aditya VI, designed the fort from one single monolithic rock in the 12th century; consequently, the fort was initially known as Tribhuvanagiri, after him. Progressively, across the hundreds of years, the name metamorphosed into Bhuvanagiri (or Bhuvana’s Hill), and gradually, into Bhongir, its existing name. The hill upon which the fort itself is built is about 500 feet high, and spread to about 40 acres of land.

Regarded essentially impregnable by infiltrating military then, the fort has a exclusive egg-shaped development with two places that are secured by large stones. A moat encircles the fort and the place itself has a large underground chamber, an armory, stables, and snare gates, among others. These can still be seen even now, which creates for some amazing watching for guests. The citadel situated on the top of the mountain gives a amazing bird’s-eye perspective of the region. According to legend, Bhongir Fort once had an underground passage that leads directly to Golconda Fort. This, of course, has never been proven.

Bhongir Fort organised its own against attacker military but by the Fifteenth century, with the introduction of gunpowder, cannons had decreased its ideal significance. It lastly went to the Bahmani Sultans who tried to remodel it, and thus, provided it an Islamic design. It became a chair to the regional governor, and a jail for Qutub Shahi throne pretenders. By the 18th century, the fort has fallen into decay, and until recently, it had just remained a silent fortification ruin, covered in its long but mysterious past.
