The region lying between the rivers Krishna and Tungabhadra had always been a home of history and legend. Particularly the mediaeval period in the history of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka was dominated by this fortress town strategically located. Today the ruins speak of its past glory and civilization.
In this book, an attempt has been made to bring to light the historical significance of the Raichur Fort. The book consists of several chapters providing a historical backdrop to the region. The inscription studied in the book is analyzed and also transliterated. The architectural features and a descriptive account of the structural monuments now extant inside the fort supplemented with maps and plates gives a vivid picture of the fortress town to the reader.
