The existence of Warangal Fort in the present-day Indian state of Telangana traced back to at least the 13th century CE.

Although precise dating of its construction and subsequent enhancements are uncertain, historians and archaeologists

generally accept that an earlier brick-walled structure was replaced with stone by Ganapatideva, who died in 1262, and

that his successors – Rudramadevi and Prataparudra – added to its height and added gateways, square bastions and

additional circular earthern walls prior to the latter's death in 1323. This places the construction towards the end of the

Kakatiya period. There were later modifications between the 15th and 17th centuries, comprising principally the addition

of barbicans to the four gates in the stone wall and the creation of gates in the outer earthern wall.

Remnants of the structure can be seen today near to the town of Warangal, which was the Kakatiya capital. The

Archaeological Survey of India has listed the remains as a Monument of National Importance.
