We went to Bidar Fort from there, which is open from 06.00 AM to 05.00 PM daily. Bidar Fort has seven gates in the fort and the places to see inside the fort are Takht Mahal, Tarkash Mahal, Rangeen Mahal, Gagan Mahal, Diwan-e-Aam and Solah Khamb Masjid. During an era when there were no Cranes or any technological aids, wonder how the men then built such huge Forts and Palaces. Inspired by the beauty of the Fort, my daughter has done a sketch of the Fort, which I have used as the cover image of this blog.The beautiful hindi song Ishq Sufiyaana, from the Bollywood movie “Dirty Picture” was shot here, featuring Imran Hashmi and Vidya Balan. Bidar has caught the attention of film directors for its unique monuments and historical locations. A lot of Kannada, Tamil and Telugu movies are also shot here. The place caught got its public attention after the Kannada movie Sanju Weds Geeta was shot here. All the songs were so beautifully picturized here on the gorgeous Ramya (Divya Spandana), with the Fort as backdrop. I have pasted an YouTube link of this lovely kannada song for you to see and enjoy. After all, sharing is caring.
Gurudwara Sri Nanak Jhira Sahib
After seeing this majestic Fort, we had our lunch at Kamat Hotel and straight went to Guru Nanak Jhira Sahib Gurudwara which was built in the year 1948 and which is dedicated to the first Sikh Guru Guru Nanak. This Gurudwara has Darbar Sahib, Diwan Hall and the Langar Hall. It’s one of the biggest Gurudwara in South India. Guru Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikhs is placed in Sukhaasan Room. This Gurudwara is built beside a spring and the water is collected in Amrit Kund, which is considered sacred by the pilgrims. Free food is served 24 hours in the Langar Hall to all the pilgrims.
