Medak Fort Overview

Ranked 3 of 19 sightseeing in Medak

The Medak Fort lies in Medak town which is the district headquarters of Medak District. The fort was initially known as Methuku Durgam and was constructed in the 12th century by the Kakatiyan rulers. Later, several modifications and renovations were done to the structure by the Qutub Shahi rulers.

The architecture of the fort represents a blend of Hindu and Islamic styles. The three main entrances of the fort are known as the Prathama Dwaram, Simha Dwaram and Gaja Dwaram. The huge boundary walls of the fort have several bastions carved from the rocks and boulders of the hillock.

The fort has a 17th century mosque that was constructed by the Qutub Shahi rulers. These rulers also added a 3.2 m long cannon to the fort during the mid 17th century to secure the fort from the attack of neighbouring kingdoms.
