Gandikota is a village and historical fort in Rayalaseema, Andhra Pradesh, Southern India.


The best time to be here is during the winter months. From March onwards the temperature shoots up to 39 Celsius and more! The Gandikota fort comes under the Archaeological Survey of India and you need prior permission from the concerned authorities. It’s a good idea to keep the police station at Jammalamadugu informed about your presence at Gandikota.
