About Court


The city of Kalaburagi was founded by the Bahmani Sultans in the 14th century as their capital. However the history of the region dates back to the 6th Century when the Rashtrakutas gained control over the area, but the Chalukyas regained their domain and reigned for over two hundred years. Around the close of the 12th century the Yadavas of Devagiri and the Hoysalas of Halebidu took control of the district. The present Kalaburagi District and Raichur District formed part of their domain.The northern Deccan, including the district of Kalaburagi, passed under control of the Muslim Sultanate of Delhi. The revolt of the Muslim officers appointed from Delhi resulted in founding of the Bahmani Sultanate in 1347 by Hassan Gangu, who chose Kalaburagi(Ahsenabad during this period) to be his capital. From 1724 to 1948 the territory occupied by the present-day Kalaburagi district was part of Hyderabad state ruled by the famous Nizams. It was integrated into India in September 1948.   Cities & Towns Afzalpur Aland Chincholi Chitapur Kalaburagi Jevargi Sedam Shahabad Wadi
