Sights to See
Solapur’s main attraction is Bhuikot Fort located on the banks of Nira River at Akluj. Also known as Akluj cha Killa, the fort came under the control of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb for a brief period. Marathas were able to gain control of the fort. Earlier in bad shape, its lost glory has been restored.
The focal point of any visit to Solapur is the Siddeshwar Temple, the pilgrimage destination of the Sikh religion. Venerated by thousands of devotees who make a trip to this holy place in the state of Maharashtra, the shrine is located in the heart of the city.
Hutatma Gardens and Indra Bhavan are other places of interest in Solapur.
