Ranked 4 among Places to Visit in Warangal
Time Required: 1-2 hrs
A prominent landmark of the Telangana state and an apt example of architectural excellence and historical richness of the yore, the Warangal fort is situated in Warangal. The city is also known as Oru Kallu, which means 'a single stone'. Locals believe the city was built on a single rock in the medieval era. Sprawlingly spread across a stretch of 19 km between Warangal & Hanamkonda, this 12th-century fort is a prominent historical attraction in Telangana. Every year thousands of enthusiastic tourists flock in to witness the historical and architectural marvel of this region.
The major highlights of Warangal fort are the four ornamental gates, which are now the official emblem of the Telangana state. The fort is in ruins today, still refelecting the historical grandeur and architectural preeminence of the Kakatiya Dynasty. The ruins hardly resemble any fort as the typical grand walls, cannons, the Darbaar Halls of the rulers are missing. However, what you can witness is the remnants of one of the most invincible fortifications of the medieval era.
