Location Details

This fort is locally known as the fort of the Gawli king. Since there are no forts in the surrounding region, Bhamer fort became the one with utmost importance. Seeing the style of architecture, one can assume the work of construction has been done in the Satvahana period. Till the 18th century, Bhamer was under the rule of Islam. It was taken over by the Marathas during 1752 A.D. the British captured all the forts in 1818 A.D. and Bhamer was captured in 1820 A.D. after destroying the monuments and fortification.
User Experience

As soon as one enters the village, the entrance archway is beautifully visible with someintricately carved stone pillars around 8 ft. in height. There is a small water body besides it. The remains of an old mosque are seen nearby. Bhamer can be distinctly visualized in 3 different parts. On the fi rst part that enters into the village is a small dome painted in white. In the second part, rock cut caves and water tanks are seen in a recessed niche. The third part is the tallest and contains the main fort. It takes around 15 minutes to cross the fi rst part and reach the entrance way and the bastion at the second. To the left are the steps which take one to the caves and water tanks, biggest in number any fort can have. While proceeding towards the main fort, that is the third part, is another entrance way with bastions and fortification. There is a small temple on the top as well as some water tanks.
