The Bidar Fort was fully built by Sultan Alla-Ud Din Bahman of the Bahmanid Dynasty. He also built a large number of Islamic monuments with the fort. The name Bidar originated from the word ‘Bamboo’, as the area on which the fort was built was a bamboo jungle. The Bidar Fort has been ruled by many kingdoms during the sands of time such as Kadambas, Chalukyas, Rashtrakutas, Kalyan Chalukyas, Kalachuris and Kakatiyas. Later, the fort witnessed the rule of Yadavas of Devgiri, Delhi Sultanate, Bahmani Sultanate and Mughal Empire.
