Gandikota is a village on the right bank of the river Pennar. The large granary, with a vaulted roof, is now used as watchman’s quarters. There is an old cannon lying in the fort. If you’re looking for quirky stay options and wish to sleep under the stars with the river gushing beside you, then camping at Gandikota is the perfect thing to do. The Belum Caves is the largest and longest cave system open to the public on the Indian subcontinent. Belum is part of a larger complex of caves carved out of the limestone deposits in the Erramalai region.
