Despite being home to amazing ruins and monuments, Bidar, hidden away in Karnataka’s far-northeastern corner, gets very little tourist traffic. Drenched in Islamic Indian history, this old-walled town was first the capital of the Bahmani kingdom (1428–87) and later the capital of the Barid Shahi dynasty. This is one of the least Westernised parts of Karnataka, with many niqab-wearing women and turbaned Sikh pilgrims, and though locals are welcoming to visitors, conservative values predominate.
