Warangal Fort

Warangal Fort

Four gigantic pillars crafted out of a single rock at the gateway, three protective layers indicating the standards of security to guard the centre of power, and the dexterity of artists of earlier times – these are the remarkable features of the Warangal Fort, the famous landmark of the city of Warangal. The fort is simply an architectural wonder of the bygone era.


Background
The construction of this massive 13th century structure was initiated by the Kakatiyan king, Ganapatideva. Later, his daughter, Rani Rudrama, made the efforts to complete the construction work. Most of the parts were destroyed by the foreign invaders, but the ruins of the structure still retain the glory & royalty of those times.


Architectural Beauty
This colossal structure, on the brink of Ekashila (a hill rock), appears diffused in the several layers. It is popular for its architectural brilliance, which is above and beyond its history. The loose ends of the fort include commanding gateways and graceful towers that elevate up to 50 feet.

The best part of its architectural beauty lies in intricate sculptures, stone works, motifs and designs – depicting animals like lions and swans. Moreover, the fort has 45 towers and pillars that are spread over a radius of 19 km. It also has a highly revered temple of Mother Earth called 'Swayambhudevi Alayam'. The stone gateways, 'Kirti Toranas' are called the gateways of glory of the Kakatiya Kings.
