Hyderabad: A sprawling ancient fort, stunning rock formations, virgin caves, rock paintings, a rare eight-foot tall Sigamudi Hanuman, mingle with nature’s gifts and manmade structures in the thick jungles of Jayashankar Bhupalpally district in the state, all uncovered by a team of explorers.
The most notable finding in the region is the massive 8 km-radius fort wall with seven entry points dating back to the Satavahana period. Locally known as Mallur Fort, located 4 km inside the forests near Mallur village of Mangapet mandal, Jayashankar district, the fort is on the banks of the river Godavari adjacent to the Eturunagaram-Bhadrachalam highway.
“Normally, forts are two to four km in radius. But this fort wall has a radius of about 8 km, much bigger than Warangal and Golconda forts.
