Bellary Fort is one of the major attractions of Ballary (Bellary). The Upper Fort and the Lower Fort together are known as Bellary Fort. The Upper Fort was built by a Hanumappa Nayaka of Vijayanagara Empire. After many years, the Lower Fort was constructed by Hyder Ali, the ruler of Mysore. The Upper Fort is a hill fort and played a significant role in the defence. Whereas the Lower Fort didn't provide the necessary strategic point and Hyder Ali didn't use it for a long time. Later, Bellary Fort became prominent only during the British rule. The ramparts of this fort hill provide a splendid view of the city. Today, Bellary Fort is one of the best tourist places in Bellary.
The region of Bilikallu reserve forest was declared as Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary in 1994. The dry deciduous thorn forests and hillocks serve as the home to many sloth bears. It is because of the efforts of Karnataka Forest Department, this sanctuary was made an ideal place for the sustenance of sloth bears. Daroji Sloth Bear Sanctuary is around 20km from Hampi and is the only sloth bear sanctuary in Karnataka. It is located between Sandur and Hospet Taluks in Ballari or Bellary. Though the prime animals are sloth bears, we can also find monitor lizards, pangolins and spotted dears. There is also a watchtower from where sloth bears can be seen.
