Inscription from a Fort
Both sacred and secular records are engraved with the same zeal. This inscription records the completion of a wall in the Belgaum Fort by Muhammad Bin Zabit Khan during the time of Khan Muhammad, who was working under Muhammad Adil Shah (1627–1656 CE) of the Bijapur sultanate.
Belgaum Fort is situated in Belgaum, Karnataka. It was built in the 13th century CE under the patronage of the Ratta Dynasty. Later, it came under the possession of several rulers — the Vijayanagara emperors, the Bijapur sultans, the Marathas, and then the British. Through the ages, the fort also went through several renovations and changes under different rulers.
