On the shores of River Bhima stands the small village of Sannati. It is mostly known for its historical riches and many visit it to get a peek into the past. During the excavation exercise by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) in the area, various tablets, terracotta items and sculptures were found that dated back to the Mauryan period. Sannati is also popular among tourists for the Chandrala Parameshwari Temple, which is visited by devotees all year round. Legend has it that the temple's presiding deity appeared on the banks of Bhima river to save a devotee from a wicked king. It is said that Sannati is also the place where sage Markandeya composed parts of Markandeya Upanishad.

During the excavations, an ancient Buddhist mahastupa was discovered along with clay pendants, black polished pottery, coins that belonged to the Satavahana and pre-Satavahana eras and these have been preserved in the Gulbarga Museum, which is a must-visit to learn more about the region's history.
