Gulbarga                                                                                                            

Gulbarga Dist. has both historical towns and holy shrines. Gulbarga itself was the seat of Bahamani Kingdom while Malkhed was the Capital of Rashtrakutas. The massive Fort in the City is built on the model of Spanish fort. This fort acts as a back drop to the spaciously built Gulbarga H P O building.  

                        Sedam is the ancient Town where the  great saint King  Nrupatunga ruled. At Yadgiri, there is a big Fort on a steep  rocky hill on which Bhuvaneshwari Temple  is situated. Shorapur, the Goldy town is fortified by an ancient fort. Shri Gopalaswamy temple is at the Hill lock town.  Ghanagapur is situated at a distance of 50KMs from Gulbarga which attracts devotees of Lord Dattareya  from far and near  places. Malkhed is an amalgum of Hindu and Muslim cultures. The Darga and temple of Poet Saint Tikkaraya attracts the people from different faiths. Chandrala Parameshwari is the famous Goddess is situated on the bank of river at Sanmati. Yet an another temple of this Goddess is situated on the confluence of the rivers Kagina and Bheema at Hongunta village. The Chaya Bhagawati spon of God Sun is seated in the natural cave on the bank of the river Krishna  near Narayanpur. Venkatapur village near Shorapur is famous for the idol of fifteen feet Basava Mailaralinga temple of Mylapur and Manikamma Temple.

                        In Gulbarga Town the Darga of Khaja Bandanawaz is a note worthy place. It's construction was commenced by Ahmed - I representing a blending of the Person - Deccanni architecture. It gives the impression of  being double storeyed though not being so. The annual  " Urus " in honour of the saint is a memorable affair. People of different religions seek the blessing of the saint in a truly secular fashion.  

                        The Annual " Jatra " connected with the temple of saint Shri Sharanabasaveshwara is another major source of attraction. Here too, people of all faiths congregate to pay theirabeissance  to the great saint.  

                        Besides Gulbarga, the structures a t Alund, Firozabad, Gogi, Kodekal and Sagar  also represent the Bahamani style of architecture.
