Shahi Sultans who ruled here for nearly 200 years have emphatically left their mark on the architecture and art around the Bijapur Fort. Subsequent sultans tried to outdo their predecessors in quantity, scale, and splendour in the structures they commissioned or renovated.

Historical Bijapur consists of the citadel, the fort, and the remains of the city. Inside both the fort and the city the Bijapur kings made stellar contributions to Islamic culture in the Deccan. Outside, the ramparts of the fort lay the ruins of what was once a large, thriving city, but it is now mostly filled with ruins and remains of tombs, mosques, caravanserais and other edifices that have resisted the march of time. These structures are evidence of the ancient Bijapur’s splendour. However, the region also offers fascinating examples of the architectural style of the Chalukya dynasty of kings in the temples at Badami, Aihole, and Pattadakal near Bijapur.
