Vijayapura, Karnataka

Been there recently?

Established by one of the greatest dynasties of Karnataka, the Kalyana Chalukyas, during the 10th century, Vijayapura (City of Victory) reached the pinnacle of its glory later during the 15th century when the Bijapur sultanate was established. The various heritage buildings scattered around the city are the remnants of the Islamic rule the city went through for nearly 4 centuries. If you love the indo Islamic architecture, then a stroll around the city is going to enthuse you. There are wells, palaces, tombs, and many other structures, including a fort, to keep an interested tourist busy. August to January is the best time to visit Vijayapura. It is approximately 525 kilometres away from Bengaluru and about 150 kilometres from Kalaburagi. Though the city has a railway station, Kalaburagi and Hubballi, 195 kilometres away, are better connected rail stations. Kalaburagi and Hubballi are the nearest domestic airports, whereas Goa and Hyderabad, over 350 kilometres away are the nearest international airports.
