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.

"Warangal fort -the pride of Kakatiyas"

  • 6.00/7
  • 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"

  • 5.00/7
  • 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.

"The archaeological monument"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Jun 27, 2014
The Warangal Fort is an archaeological monument with numerous shiva shrines and historical structures, which are mainly in ruins. Although most parts are in ruins, the elaborate sculptures of Kakatiya dynasty are still preserved. The highlight of this site are the Toranas, or tall sculpted gateways. There are 4 toranas on 4 sides. Most of the monuments were ruined during invasion by the British. It has a good garden to play.The place gives a feeling of the famous Vijayanagara sites in Hampi.

"Fun With Friends"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted May 28, 2014
The Warangal fort is good. The fees were also nominal - around Rs 10 for each person. This is a good place to visit if you like birds and mountains. There are hotels and small accommodations where you can relax and have a good time.
