Warangal Fort is spread over a radius of 19 km between Warangal and Hanamkonda. This fort was constructed in the 13th century, when this region was under the administration of King Ganapati Deva and his daughter Rudramma Devi. This fort is also famous for its intricately carved arches and pillars; and four large stone gateways. The temple inside the fort is dedicated to the Mother Earth, Swayambhudevi.

Located close to this fort is the monument called Khush Mahal which was constructed by Shittabh Khan, supposedly over the Kakatiya palace.

"Beautiful remnants"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
A photographer's delight, the fort remnants were beautiful to look at. However, there was hardly any information around, and no guides available. Great to visit during sunrise or sunset. A nice stopover during Warangal trip.

"Visit once in life time"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The Kakatiyas Sila Thoranam that means entrance pillars is famous in this area. We should travel to this fort because of the creativity of building such pillars with a single piece stone and number of designs sculptured in that every pillar. Entrance of the fort is symbolic representation of Kakatiyas, this representation is using Telangana state symbol such a great story behind this place. We must visit once in a life.

"Warangal fort -the pride of Kakatiyas"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 12, 2014
Warangal a historic city is an architectural masterpiece of Kakatiyas. Warangal fort was the fort of Kakatiyas during their rule. Located in the midst of the city, the fort gives an artistic and cultural description of the Kakatiya dynasty. People with interest in history will definitely love this. There are many more monumental creations of Kakatiyas situated very near so come along with your friends and witness the glory of Kakatiyas.

"Good fort to visit in life atleast once"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Aug 26, 2014
I have visited Warangal Fort last week. I wanted to see 1000 pillars temple, when I got there the main entrance was closed due to construction reasons from last few years. So don't expect much but you can see other things. Good experience with others expect 1000 pillars temple.
