History of raichur

Raichur has been ruled by various dynasties, Vijayanagara and Bahmani being the most noted ones. Being a part of the fertile Doab land between the rivers Tungabhadra and Krishna, Raichur naturally attracted the attention of various rulers. The Raichur Fort, built by the Kakatiyas in the 13th century AD, stands as the witness of its rich historical background. The stone inscriptions in Persian and Arabic refer to its construction in 1294 AD. \n\nThe ruins of this ancient fort include iron canons, old temples and irrigation tanks. However, even before the Kakatiyas, Raichur has been conquered countless times by a number of rulers. Rock edicts of the great emperor Ashoka serve as proof that the region was also under the rule of the Mauryas. In the 3rd and 4th century AD, the Vakatakas took over the region, following which the area came under the control of Chalukyas of Badami. Inscriptions have also been found which suggest that Raichur was ruled by the Rashtrakutas in the 8th century AD. The region finally came into the hands of the British and in 1956, it was annexed as a part of the state of Mysore, later renamed as Karnataka.
