Officially known as Kalaburagi, this city is famous for its historical monuments, temples, tombs and delectable cuisine. Located at a distance of 623 kms from Bangalore, Gulbarga, the administrative headquarters of Gulbarga district in Northern Karnataka, is an essential landmark in the history and culture of the region.
Laid out with rich cultural heritage dating back to the 6th century, Gulbarga has traces of almost all the major powers of the Southern region in its map, but the most prominent of them is that of the Bahmani Sultanate and the subsequent dominance of the Aurangzeb after its decline. The city thrives on architectural marvels of those ages while being an important religious centre of Sufism.
The stark architecture and monuments of the area, with Hindu and Muslim influences in equal measure, look stunning and serene. The forts, in particular, are a must-visit. With a busy tourist season, budget accommodation options and colourful festivals, Gulbarga promises an enjoyable time with your loved ones. If you’re looking for a healthy dose of cultural beauty, heritage and breathtaking locations, Gulbarga is just the place for you.
