If Genie would appear before me and ask for wishes, do you know what I would opt for ? Time Travel! Because I would go on time to witness the bygone years – which we call as the ancient and rich history of a place. Then, I would be filled with tons of stories about our glorious past, which I would vividly share with you here!
Because some places are so much enriched with a deep-rooted history, which makes me go back in time, to be a part of the majestic splendor. The opulence of these places resonates through their impeccable structures. They withstand the climate over decades and stand tall, welcoming the visitors. It looks as though these monuments behold thousands of words – many unknown mysteries, little-revealed secrets and interesting stories of their creators.
One such place which never ceases to amaze me is Bijapur. Although Hampi tops my list of personal favorites as the historical place which I love and admire the most, it’s little neighbor Bijapur is also home to magnificent monuments.
Popularly known as the ‘Agra of the South’ or ‘Queen of the Deccan’, Bijapur has a significant role in the history. The monuments are known for their Indo – Islamic architecture which reflects the best of both worlds. The culmination of two distinct cultures in Bijapur is what fascinates me. Because these monuments are a result of immensely talented sculptors and their brilliance radiates in every structure.
