Gulbarga, India

The founding capital of the Bahmani dynasty, Gulbarga remains a predominantly Muslim town but many of its once magnificent buildings are now in ruins.

The exceptions, which are worth visiting, are the marble tomb complex of Dargah, always busy with Muslim pilgrims who come to leave offerings for the saint Bandah Nawaz who was spiritual mentor to the Bahmani rulers.

On the other side of the town is a deserted fort whose 14th century mosque is said to have been modeled on the Spanish mosque of Cordoba.
