One of the main attractions around the famous city of Solapur is the Bhuikot Fort, which was built by the Bahamani dynasty in the 14th century. It is said the great Aurangzeb spent several years here. Built during the Bahamani rule the fort is as old as the fourteenth century. The fort was home to Emperor Aurangzeb for an entire year from 1685-86 AD.

Today, Bhuikot Fort has its very own animal park, which has proven to be a great hangout for families and students alike. The animal park may not be grand but houses several rabbits, ducks and peacocks and monkeys, amongst few other animals. The fort that was once in shambles has recently been resurrected to its old glory. The lake nearby adds to the already scenic setting and shimmers in orange during sunsets. Bhuikot Fort is a good spot for family picnics as there are some amusement options for children present here.

Getting to the fort isn't too difficult since it is located in the Sidheshwar temple area, which is at the heart of the city of Solapur.
