The Bhongir Fort of Nalgonda was first erected by the Musunuri Nayaks of these southern parts. The base of the fort atop an out of the terrain, singularly standing huge monolithic rock was their original idea and the root to the fort’s uniqueness. In the latter years with the advent of the Chalukya and Kakatiya dynasties the fortification of the Bhongir Fort of Nalgonda was revamped. The stories of Tribhuvanamalla Vikramaditya the 4th about this fort and the reign bestowed the region a new name of Bhuvanagiri. With course of time after many invasions there were many shifts of power in this fort from the sultans to the nizams to the people.

The vista of the neighbouring land and the legends of the land give the travellers all encouragement and solace they want.
