Gandikota is situated on the Pennar River in Andhra Pradesh and is known as the Grand Canyon of India. Formed between the Erramala range of hills, also known as Gandikota hills and the river Pennar that flows at its foot, the area is marked by deep valleys and massive boulders of granite. The great canyon of Gandikota has also played an important role in Andhra history. The town played a significant role during the Kakatiya, Vijayanagara and Qutub Shahi periods. The Pemmasani Nayadus, who ruled over Gandikota for almost 300 years were commanders of the Vijayanagara army. The fort fell into hands of Qutubshahis of Golconda in 1650 CE. The medieval fort of Gandikota which you can find here is named after the adjoining gorge; as the Telugu word for gorge is gandi. The magnificent Gandikota fort, which was once famous for being one of the most impregnable strongholds of its time has remains of temples and a mosque and is today scattered with debris. The fort is built in such a way that the gorge provides a natural defence on its west and north sides. The spectacular gorge and the Gandikota fort are a must visit!
