Further to the north-east and 669 kms from Bangalore is the town of Bidar. The capital of the Bahamani kingdom and later the Barid Shahi dynasty, Bidar has a 15th century Fort. The Muhammad Gawan 'Madrasa' and the tombs of the Bahamani and Barid kings deserve a visit. Bidar is famous for 'bidriware' - a distinct and exquisite craft of this district.
