Bidar – January 2010

While in Hyderabad in January for a job, I went to visit my friends, the Lunberrys. They took me with them to Bidar, Karnataka for a day trip to look at the bidriware artisans in this small town. I realized recently that I never touched the photographs I took that day. Here are few examples.
This fort in Bidar was built in the 14th & 15th centuries by the Bahamani Kings. It’s a large fort, surrounded by 3 miles of wall.

More Photos after the break! –>>





Fellow tourist that looks much more native in her surroundings than I do.

Made in India…if you were wondering.
