About the places -

Nanded :: This fort had a dual fortification wall and 24 bastions out of which 14 bastions were in the outer fortification wall and 10 bastions were in the inner fortification wall. Only 3 bastions and the fortification wall are visible from the outside while only 8 bastions are intake as of date. The municipal corporation of Nanded has built two water tanks here. Walking towards these water tanks we enter the fort premises and a sign board which gives information about the fort has been installed near these tanks. Moving ahead there is a pond which is 15 feet long, 12 feet wide and 1o feet deep and next to this pond there are remnants of some structures which were built recently. Proceeding further to the left from these remains there is a bastion on the river bank with a shelter mounted on it. (Info source :- Trekshitiz)

Mahurgad: Mahurgad Fort is a fort located 130 km (81 mi) from Nanded. It is a pilgrimage centre of great significance to Hindus. It is the seat of goddess Renukadevi which is a shrine of Shaktipeeth.

The fort was built by Yadavas of Devgiri. 1n 1358, the fort was under the rule of Muhamad Shah Bahamani. In 1398, a local Gond chief from Berar captured Mahur. In 1428, Ahmed Shah Bahamani won the Mahurgad. Burhan Nizam Shah of Ahmadnagar defeated Alauddin Imad Shah of Berar in 1527 and occupied Mahur. In 1617, the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan defeated the Ahmednagar rulers and gained control of the Fort. Pandita Savitribai Deshmukh was the ruler of Varhad, who was holding the Jahagir of Mahur during the Mughal Empire rule. She was given the honorary name of Rai Bagan (Royal tigress) by Mughal Emperor  Aurangzeb after defeating Harchandrai. In 1670, Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj gained the control of Aurangabad and Berar. After the death of Shivaji Maharaj, the Moghuls again gained the control of Berar in 1689.

Aundha Nagnath Temple :-  is an ancient  Shiva temple, 8th Jyotirlinga located at Aundha Nangnath village in Hingoli District.

Kandhar Fort: Known as ‘Kandharpur’ in medieval times, the 1000-year-old Kandhar Fort was one of the capitals of Rashtrakutas founded by Rashtrakuta king Krishna III in the 10th centuary CE spread across 24 acres around 40 km from Nanded. The oldest surviving structure in the fort is a stepwell from the Yadava period (9th to 14th centuries CE) … The main gate of the fort has a persian inscription from Muhamad Bin Tughlaq (1325- 1351). The imposing fort is encircled by a 12 meter wall and once had 18 watch towers overlooking the area. Jatantunsagar :- A reservoirs inside the fort

About the places -

Bidar Fort :: The Bidar fort is a specimen of the Persian architectural style having 1.21 km in length and 0.80 km in breadth, with a quadrangular layout. Surrounded by three miles long walls and comprising 37 bastions, it is surrounded by a triple moat.

There are seven gates in the fort. The dominant main gate exhibits Persian style architecture. The Gumbad Darwaza depicts arches with stilted size, also in Persian style. The Sherza Darwaza, the second gate of entry depicts two images of tigers carved on its fascia. The other gates are the Fateh Gate on the south, Talghat Gate in the east, Delhi Gate and Mandu Gate. The prominent bastion at the entry is known as the Munda Burj with guns positioned on it.

Within the fort complex, there is an old city, with monuments and structures from Bahamian era. Among these monuments, Gagan Mahal, Rangin Mahal and Tarkash Mahal are most popular. Jami Masjid and Solah Khamba Masjid are the two notable mosques constructed within the fort.

The inner section of the fort behind Solah Khamba Mosque has few wonderful monuments like Diwan-i-Am (also known as Jali Mahal) was a Public Audience hall built by Bahamani Sultans in 14th-15th centuries. It is currently in ruins. The Jalis can be still in the upper windows of the structure.

Beside the Diwan-i-Am is a wonderful structure known as Diwan-i-Khass also called Takht Mahal or Throne Palace. It was built by Bahamani Sultan Ahmad Shah between 1422-1436. This is the place where coronation of several Bahamani and Barid Shahi sultans was taken place. The palace used to be adorned with beautifully colored tiles and stone carvings part of which can be still seen on the arches. This structure is closed for public and the outer sections can be seen from outside.

Behind Diwan-i-Khass, an old temple known as Valkoti Bhavani temple exists along with few settlements.

.

Basavakalyan Fort: is considered to be one of the oldest and most imposing forts in South India. It was built by King Nalaraja in the 10th century. Basavakalyan, earlier known as Kalyani, was the royal capital of the Western Chalukyan

The fort is strategically built as a defensive structure, with inter-connecting boulders scattered on the hills with strong fort walls. The fort has seven gates, five of them are in perfect condition. At the entrance there is a solid arch with balconies which can be accessed by steps on both sides. The main gate to the citadel is known as the Akhand Darwaza and has been built with four red stone slabs. There is a temple adjoining the Rajmahal palace and a square pond in front of the temple, towards the west side of the temple is the Rani Mahal.

The majority of the places in the fort are now in ruins, the only maintained structure that can be found here is the mosque as an Urdu school is running here. The museum adjoining the fort has a number of Jain idols which belong to the 10th and 11th centuries. There is a large cannon placed at one of the bastions of the fort.
