Medak also has a small fort on a hillock that stands majestically above the town of Medak and gives a panoramic view of the district. It is a citadel built on a hillock that provided as a vantage point for the Kakatiyan rulers in ancient India. It has three main entrances, the “Prathama Dwaram”, the “Simha Dwaram” that has two snarling lions at the top of the entrance and the “Gaja Dwaram”, or Elephant’s Entrance that has a sculpture of two elephants interlocked on both sides of the entrance. There is a Mosque on top of the form and a old jail.
