I wanted to visit Ibrahim Rauza and bada kamaan on that day itself but had no time as their closing time is 6 pm. So I decided to visit Taj Bawadi, the living well of Bijapur. Bawadi means a well to store water. We find great evidences of very well maintained water supply during Adil shahi dynasty. There are a number of bawadis in Bijapur which were once used to supply water to the city. Among all the bawadis , Taj bawadi is the largest in size. It has rooms on both the sides of the tank which indicates it was also used as a luxury commodity to indulge in water sports. Now, this tank is not maintained by the government. City's drainage water is now mixed with the water in the tank. Once a symbol of luxury and prosperity, now this great water tank is in the state of neglect.
This is the oldest city of the Hoysala Empire which was built around the 11th to 13th century. This is a small and peaceful city and is also very close to the tourist attractions of Shravanabelgola, Halebid and Belur. Halebid is a famous Jain destination and also a place where there are famous Hoysala designs, Belur is also a temple city and Shravanabelgola is the place with the famous Lord Bahubali temple.
