The foundations of this city were laid by the Kalyani Chalukyas sometime between the 10th – 11th centuries. Ruled by a number of different dynasties at various points in history, the city of Bijapur owes much of its grandeur and splendor to Yusuf Adil Shah, founder of the independent state of Bijapur.

A city full of palaces, tombs, arches, gateways and minarets, walking amongst Bijapur’s ruins is an experience in itself. Its architectural wonders carved from rich basalt and framed by lush greenery are no less than pieces of art and these make the city a treasury of history and culture.
