The Bellary Fort is an impressive and unique fort in Karnataka built on a monolithic rock hill. Yet it is like an orphan. Despite its history and grandeur it attracts only stray tourists.

The Fort was built on top of a hill called the ‘Ballari Gudda’ or the Fort Hill. The fort walls have been constructed using granite stones and mud. It was built in two parts namely, the Upper Fort and the Lower Fort. The Upper Fort was built by Hanumappa Nayaka, a feudatory of Vijayanagar Empire in the 16th century.
