Mauryas, megaliths and a medieval fort

Brahmagiri & Chitradurga

About the Tour

Travel through 4000 years of Indian history in two days, all of it set in boulder-strewn landscapes that are as dramatic as they are picturesque! We take you to Brahmagiri and Chitradurga, to see records written more than 2200 years ago by order of one of the world’s most celebrated emperors; remnants of structures built by people who lived more than 4000 years ago; a dazzling medieval fort; and a set of caves and enigmatic underground structures that date from at least 2000 years ago.

Our walk leaders include resource people who have worked extensively with the Archaeological Survey of India on conservation and restoration of monuments as well as heritage interpretation at historical sites.
