Abstract:Bidar was already a provincial headquarter of the Bahamani kingdom when the capital was transferred there in 1424 by Shihabuddin Ahmad I. The reasons for this shift are to be sought in the internal strife that racked Gulbarga as well as the external conflicts with Vijayanagara. The natural position of Bidar also offered several advantages over the earlier capital -- Gulbarga. Historical, political, social, and cultural details are discussed in this article as are, the structure and main monuments of Bidar.
