Bidar District With Tahsils & Tourist Places in Karnataka State

Bidar District With Tahsils & Tourist Places in Karnataka State: Bidar’s name seems to come from the word “bidiru,” which means “bamboo.” The area appears to have been noted for bamboo clusters, earning it the names ‘Bidaroor,’ ‘Bidare,’ and ‘Bidar.’ Even though there are other stories about where the name “Bidarooru” comes from, it seems closer to the truth and is supported by writings from the present day. Bidar is an Indian city on a hilltop on the Deccan plains in the northeast of the state of Karnataka. It is the headquarters of the Bidar District.

Since it is about 700 km (430 mi) from the state capital, Bengaluru, it has been ignored for a long time by the state government. But because of its long history, the city stands out on the Archaeological Map of India. The Bidar Fort is more than 500 years old and still stands strong. It is in a beautiful spot on the Deccan plains. According to the book “Bidar Heritage” by the State Department of Archaeology, Museums, and Heritage, about 30 of the 61 monuments mentioned by the department are tombs in and around Bidar city. That’s why it’s called “The City of Whispering Monuments.” Heritage sites in and around Bidar have become the most popular place to shoot films in recent years. Both Bollywood and the Kannada film business have made trips there.
