Bidar

Bidar Fort: the main gateway was originally built by Bahamani Sultan Ahmad Shah Wali in 1429 AD. Further improvements to the citadel were carried out by the Barid Shahi Sultans. Ahmad Shah Wali (1422–1435), the ninth Bahamani Sultan, decided to shift his capital from Gulbarga to Bidar for reasons of health.
