Warangal Fort – A Significance of History

With all the fun and exploration of the city, we didn’t realize when the last day of our trip arrived. We were a bit upset that our marvelous vacation is going to end, but on the brighter side, we spent some wonderful days together enjoying various attractions of the city, that also enriched our knowledge. Decided to make most of our day, we planned to visit the next destination that was the Warangal Fort.

The famous Warangal Fort, which is at a distance of about 150 km from Hyderabad, is sited at the crown of a hill. This is the most important site of India and is distinguished for its numerous temples and valuable artifacts that are present here. It exhibits the marvelous architecture of the Kakatiyan dynasty and harbors some rare work and skills of architecture.

We had an early breakfast and packed some eateries with us and left for the place; as it was about to take a considerable time to reach there so I decide to make teh reservation for my next journey using my app for bus booking and reservation.

We were welcomed by the Thoranan Arches and striking pillars that were spread over an area of around 19 kilometers lying between Hanamkonda and Warangal. Most parts of the fort were in ruins and need proper conservation, but then also Warangal fort was amongst the popular attractions of Andhra Pradesh. The place holds some valuable resources from the history. This fort has been witness to many wars and rebellion in the decades of past. We were impressed by the remarkable gateway that comprised of the four huge pillars, which were crafted from a single rock. The wreck of the fort comprised of intricate sculptures, stone works, motifs and designs that depicted animals like lions and swans.

The fort was surrounded by three protective layers depicting the high security measures that were taken to guard its inner precincts and safeguard its core. The outmost wall o the fort was a mud wall and was around 20 feet in height. The second wall was built of granite.

All in all, there were 45 towers and pillars within the fort with the temple of Mother Earth called as ‘Swayambhudevi Alayam’ lying in the middle. Warangal Fort was overpowered by one invader, who was successful to penetrated the marvelous three layered shield of the fort.
