Daroji Bear Santuary

Daroji Bear Santuary (Bellary District) Hampi near Hospet, in Bellary district is a renowned world heritage centre. The unique Sloth Bear sanctuary is situated very close to this heritage site. Situated only 15 kilometers from Hampi, Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary is the only sanctuary in North Karnataka. Though the sanctuary is relatively new, which began in 1994 in the eastern plains of Karnataka, it has proved to be a suitable habitat for the Indian Sloth Bears in a span of few years. The rock-strewn hillocks that stretch between Daroji of Sandur taluk and Ramasagar of Hospet Taluk in Bellary district have been the abode of Indian Sloth Bears since ages. In October 1994, the Government of Karnataka declared 5,587.30 hectares of Bilikallu reserve forest as Daroji Bear Sanctuary. Geographically, it is located between 15o 14' to 15o 17' N latitude and 76o 31' to 76o 40' E longitude. However, at the time of declaration, the forest had nothing but barren stony hillocks and thorny trees. Owing to the arduous efforts of the staff and support of the surrounding villagers, the sanctuary has transformed into a lush green area boasting of a verdant forest with exuberant local species of flora and fauna. It is estimated that about 120 Sloth Bears are living in this sanctuary, apart from Leopards, Hyena, Jackals, Wild Boars, Porcupine, Pangolins, Star Tortoise, Monitor Lizard, Mongoose, Pea Fowls, Partridges, Painted Spur Hen, Quails etc. About 90 species of birds, and 27 species of butterflies have also been identified in this sanctuary in a preliminary survey.

Welcome to Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary. Locally known as KARADI, the Sloth Bear (Melursus Ursinus) lives in open scrub forests having outcrop of rocks, tumbled boulders and caves as shelter. Being more of vegetarian, it has choice fodd habits like consuming fruits, tubers, honey, insects and termites. But if it happens to live near human settlements, will not hesitate to add sugarcane and maize crops to its regular diet. It has a fond taste for Ber fruits and Mahuva (Madhuka latifolia) flowers. In a mischievous mood, a bear will also climb palm trees to steal toddy from collection pots. They usually hunt for food during nights and rest during the mornings, drinking water at least once in a day.

About Indian Sloth Bear.

There are eight species of Bears in the world. Indian Sloth Bear is confined to India and Sri Lanka only. Its scientific (Zoological) name is Melursus ursimus. It has long, dark unkempt coat of hair with a characteristic v-shaped chevron on its chest. Fore limbs are longer than the hind limbs. The hairless feet are armed with white, blunt, curved claws, which extend up to three inches. Hairless webs unite the pads of the fingertips. Though the head is comparatively large, the Sloth Bears have relatively small ears and eyes. Hence their sense of hearing and vision is poor. But they have outstanding sense of smell.

Their short-haired, grayish-colored muzzle is extremely flexible and ends in the nose. The nostrils can be closed at will. The lips are extremely loose and two incisor teeth are absent in the upper jaw. All these arrangements are helpful for sucking termites and ants.
Normally, adults attain a length of about six feet and stand three feet at the shoulder. Male adults weigh about 140 kg and female adults about 75 kg. While sommer is their mating period, this is often accompanied by a lot of quarrel and fighting between the males and the females. Usually two to three cubs are born in winter. The newborn cubs are small, hairless and blind for three weeks. The mother rears the cubs for two to three years. The life span of Bears is 40 to 50 years. The Sloth Bears are nocturnal animals.
Visiting Hours

Visiting hours of the sanctuary is between 6.00 A M and 6.00 P M on all days. To watch the Bears one must be in the watch-tower on a hillock and sit quietly to look at the Bears descending from the opposite Karadikallu Gudda. This hillock has hundreds of caves where the Bears take shelter. For the travel enthusiasts, who nurture plans to visit this sanctuary, it is advisable to wear natural dark colored clothes.

Bellary Fort

This is situated in the heart of Bellary City with more than two k.m. in circumference.This attractive fort which will be illuminated on national festivals is 1976 feet above the sea level and 480 feet above the level of the town.

After the fall of Vijayanagara Empire in 1565 AD, Bellary region came under the rule of Hanumappa Nayaka, a local chieftain who strengthened its defence. In 1775 AD it was annexed by Haiderali and his son Tippu Sultan held upto 1792. Haiderali built upper and lower forts as they are now. After a short stint of Nizam rule, the fort was taken over by the East India Company in 1800 AD.

The fort is located towards north-east of the town over a mass of granatoid hills at a height of 1976 feet, above the mean sea level. It is around 3.5 miles in circumference. The fort roughly triangular in shape is built of cyclopean masonry in granite and set in lime mortar has a coping of brick and lime with musket holes. It has circular and semi circular bastions at regular intervals. The lower fort has a moat about 18 feet deep and 30 to 40 feet wide. The main arched entrance leads to open courtyard, having a couple of secular structures and temples. On the peak of the hillock are a few ponds. A huge natural pond of irregular shape is at the foot of the hillock known as Naalacheruvu.

The Bellary Fort is an impressive and unique fort in Karnataka built on a monolithic rock hill. Yet it is like an orphan. Despite its history and grandeur it attracts only stray tourists.

The Fort was built on top of a hill called the ‘Ballari Gudda’ or the Fort Hill. The fort walls have been constructed using granite stones and mud. It was built in two parts namely, the Upper Fort and the Lower Fort. The Upper Fort was built by Hanumappa Nayaka, a feudatory of Vijayanagar Empire in the 16th century.

With the fall of the Vijayanagar Empire in 1565, the area witnessed political upheaval. The region subsequently came under the control of the Bijapur Sultans. Shivaji, who during one of his campaigns was passing through the fort seized it in 1678, as some of his advance scouting parties were ambushed by the garrison stationed in the fort. He later restored the fort on condition of a tribute payment.

Under force, in 1761, the fort came under the control of Basalat Jung of Adoni. The Nayaka chieftain of the fort quarrelled with Basalat Jung and refused to pay the tribute money. The Nayaka sought the help of Hyder Ali of Mysore to attack the Adonis. Hyder Ali convincingly defeated the Adonis. He surprised the forces sent by the Nizam under the military command of a Frenchman named M de Lally. Subsequently Hyder Ali himself usurped the fort and the region in 1769. It was during his time that the Upper Fort was restored and the Lower Fort was newly constructed. He employed a French engineer to renovate the fort. The lower fort was added by Hyder Ali around the eastern half of the hill.

Case of unknown French engineer

Legend has it that Hyder Ali had the French engineer hanged. It seems that he had overlooked the fact that the neighbouring Kumbara Gudda was taller than Ballari Gudda, thus compromising the secrecy and command of the fort. The French engineer’s grave, dated 1769 (inscribed as unknown French engineer), is located at the east gate of the fort and has been preserved because of the efforts of local Muslims who also claim that it was the tomb that belonged to a Muslim saint.

But after the defeat of Tipu Sultan, Hyder Ali’s son, at the hands of the British during the Third Anglo-Mysore War, the territory was divided and the Bellary district with the fort was given to the then Nizam Salabat Jang. The fort was classified as first class by the British administration. This fort gave Bellary its importance, and led to its selection by the British rulers as the site of a cantonment. Muzzaffar Khan, the Nawab of Kurnool, was confined here from 1823 to 1864 for the murder of his wife.

The fort has a commanding view of the plains of the present day Bellary town. The hill is semi-elliptical in shape. The rock formations consist of a mixture of granite with feldspar. The reflection of the sun’s rays is cause for warm climatic conditions in the fort. It is advisable to visit the fort early in the morning or in the evening.

The upper fort houses the citadel. It can be accessed only through a winding rocky path amongst scattered boulders, which was once considered impregnable. On the top, outside the citadel is a small temple and the remains of some cells. Within the citadel there are several well-constructed buildings. It contains several cisterns, which have been excavated in the rocks to provide for water storage.

The lower fort is located at the eastern base of the rock. The fort structure is encircled by ramparts with numerous bastions surrounded by a deep ditch. The lower fort has two entrance gates; one on the western end and the other on the eastern side. Just outside the eastern gate of the lower fort is a temple dedicated to Hanuman, the Kote Anjaneya Temple.

The Bellary Fort was ruled by Tippu Sultan “The Tiger of Mysore” which was built on the monolithic rock known to be the second single rock mountain in the world. There was seven colour’s water which now been evaporated due to heavy heat and it is known to be that the tunnel linked the route to Srirangapatna of Mysore. Bellary Fort is one of those historical sites that spin a history of over 3000 years. It was constructed by Hanumappa Nayaka during Vijayanagara era. In 1769 Hyder Ali captured the fort and revamped it with the help of a French engineer. Bellary Fort is situated at the hilltop of the Ballari Gudda. The USP of the fort is that it has been built on a monolithic rock. Ballari Gudda is presumed to be the second single rock mountain in the world. After Hyder Ali it was Tipu who ruled Bellary Fort.

Bellary Fort can be divided into two parts-the Upper fort and the Lower fort. The Upper fort was originally constructed during the Vijayanagara times. The polygonal Bellary Fort is with a single entrance. This part of the fort consists of a citadel (1976 ft.), cisterns, temple, several pools and cells. There was a seven-color waterbody that has currently evaporated. The tunnel here is also said to link the cities of Mysore and Sriragapatna. A single rock-strewn way will lead the travellers to the top of Bellary Fort.

The Lower part of the fort was constructed by Hyder Ali. This part lies in the eastern base of the rock. Measuring half a mile it once had armory and garrisons. There are two entrances to access the Lower fort facing the eastern and the western directions. Outside the eastern gate the tourists will come across a temple of Lord Hanuman. Bellary Fort is a major tourist attraction in the Bellary district. Recently the fort has been beautified with light and it is spectacular to witness the huge structure at evening. The green expanse and the hill top sceneries are the other attractions of the Bellary fort.

The fort attracts plenty of visitors during the day and also towards the evening; recently the fort has been illuminated on a 2 km stretch using 188 special lights.
