Ballari Fort is ranked 6th in the list of Best places to visit in Bellary.

Place Description

The Bellary Fort, also known as Ballari Gudda or the Fort Hill, is located in the historic city of Bellary in Karnataka state, India. It is situated on top of a hill and is divided into two parts – the Upper Fort and the Lower Fort. The Upper Fort was built by Hanumappa Nayaka, a feudatory of Vijayanagara Empire, while the Lower Fort was constructed by Hyder Ali in the late 18th century. The Lower Fort was designed and built by a French engineer, who also renovated the Upper Fort. However, Haider Ali was displeased with the forts’ lower elevation compared to the nearby ‘Kumbara Gudda’ hill, which put them at a military disadvantage. Legend has it that Haider Ali ordered the hanging of the French engineer at the east gate of the fort. The grave of the French engineer, dating back to 1769, can still be found at the east gate and is considered a sacred tomb by local Muslims.

The forts boast impressive ramparts and have a rich history, with numerous historical and religious monuments.

17. Hampi

Places to visit in Bellary for 2023

Place Description

Hampi or Hampe, also known as the Group of Monuments at Hampi, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated in Hampi, Vijayanagara district, east-central Karnataka, India. Hampi has a rich history that predates the Vijayanagara Empire. It is mentioned in the Ramayana and the Puranas of Hinduism as Pampa Devi Tirtha Kshetra. Even today, Hampi holds great religious significance and is home to the Virupaksha Temple, an active monastery linked to Adi Shankara, as well as various ancient monuments from the old city.

In the 14th century, Hampi served as the capital of the Vijayanagara Empire. It was a fortified city known for its prosperity and grandeur. Historical accounts from Persian and European travelers, especially the Portuguese, describe Hampi as a thriving city located near the Tungabhadra River. It boasted numerous temples, farms, and bustling trading markets. By 1500 CE, Hampi-Vijayanagara had become the second-largest city in the world, surpassed only by Beijing. It was also likely the wealthiest city in India during that time, attracting traders from Persia and Portugal.

However, the Vijayanagara Empire eventually faced defeat at the hands of a coalition of Muslim sultanates. In 1565, the capital of the empire was conquered, pillaged, and destroyed by the armies of the sultanates. Since then, Hampi has remained in ruins, serving as a reminder of its glorious past.
