Bobbili Fort Info: The Kingdom of Bobbili was established in the 17th Century by Pedda Rayudu who was the most popular king. Thandra Paparayudu, who was regarded as "Bobbili Puli" or the "Tiger of Bobbili", was a valorous king of Bobbili. His son Raja Lingappa Ranga Rao Bahadur Garu who was granted the additional title of "Ranga Rao" by the Moghul Emperor, constructed a fort and town that was originally called Pedda puli, Bebbuli and finally Bobbili. He built the massive fort in Bobbili and established a flourishing town. Few of the parts of the fort remain as a silent example speaking volumes about the golden era and the tough times of the war.
The temple of Venugopala swami that was patronized by the Bobbili kings stand at the entrance of the fort.
