Indrakeela Parvata is one of the picnic spot, it is located a little away from the city on Gadag road. Male Malleshwara temple is also one of the attractions of this place. At the top of this hill, there are ponds where Lotus flowers are abundant. To see this, you have to climb up the hill with some known person.

There are two inscriptions of Ashoka - The Great, one in Gavimatha and the other in Indrakeela Parvata in Gadag road. These depict the significance of the city even during the times of Ashoka.

Koppal fort has seen no development except for some lightings, but still you can go to top of this fort and enjoy the sight from the top which is just mesmerizing. It is said that, it was built by Hyder Ali. It will astonish you for sure because, without any proper maintenance, the walls of the fort are still intact and strong enough.

The city hails the name from Kopananagari....It's a district headquarters situated in North Karnataka....More than that it's my Native😆😆

This city was under the rule of Vijayanagara Kingdom, passed on to Bahmani's, Hyder Ali and later under the rule of Hyderabad Nizam till it was merged with India by the efforts of Sardar Vallabha Bhai Patel ji. It's best known for its Hot Climate and it's very hot Climate...I haven't made any mistakes...I just is just that hot.

Koppal is fully surrounded by beautiful hillocks.. Gavimatha, Indrakeela Parvata, Bahadur Bandi, KishKinda, Anjanaadri betta etc....
