The garrison city of Belgaum boasts of a number of tourist attractions including the sprawling Belgaum Fort. Belgaum tours would help you appreciate these monuments.
Located in the heart of the city, the Belgaum Fort towers over the
Belgaum landscape with its elliptical layout. One of the oldest forts of
Karnataka, the Belgaum Fort is unique for a myriad of religious shrines
within its ramparts. At the entrance, two shrines devoted to Ganapathi
and Durga exist in harmony with the two ancient mosques, the Safa Masjid
and the Jamia Masjid.
Located inside the Belgaum Fort are two Jain bastis built in the Late
Chalukyan style. Of these, the more famous is the Kamala basti, built in
1204. The Kamala Basti has a huge protruding lotus (Kamala) in its
ceiling and houses the idol of the twenty-second Jain Teerthankara
