We went on a one-day road trip to Bidar during the long Diwali weekend. Bidar, the seat of the Bahmani dynasty and later the Barid Shahi Dynasty, is a town in northern Karnataka, about 140 kms from Hyderabad. I'll share some pictures I shot there soon, but now I want to share some images from a small town on the road from Hyderabad to Bidar - Zaheerabad.
Zaheerabad was named after Nawab Zaheer Yar Jung Bahadur, the oldest son of Sir Asman Jah Bahadur, from Hyderabad's Paigah family.So I thought it was appropriate to post about it on this blog :) While driving past Zaheerabad, we saw these interesting ruins right on the highway
I have no clue what these are, or who built them. I asked some locals but all they knew was that they were built a very long time ago, and housed some sort of a market. But they looked more like a residence to me. If you know what they are, do tell us!
