An inscription and inscriptions and literary evidence have helped to conclude that Vijayapura was glorious in the seventh century. But there is no trace of the grandeur of architecture and sculpture of that time.
Yusuf Ali Shah, released from the Bahmani Empire, decided to establish an independent state. The new dynasty was called Adil Shahi. He chose Vijayapura as his capital. Many of the rulers of Adil Shahi led to the development of different phases of Vijayapur city. Prominent among them were Yusuf Ali Shah, Ismail Ali Shah, Ibrahim Ali Shah-1, Ali Adil Shah, Ibrahim Ali Shah-2 and Mohammad Adil Shah.
The constant conflict with the other sultans, separate from the Vijayanagara Empire, the Mughal Empire and the Bahmani Empire, undermined the stability of Adil Shahi. In time, the Peshwas of Maharashtra and the Nizam of Hyderabad invaded Vijayapur. Finally, the British became its owner, adding it to the Mumbai Presidency.
Vijayapur is a fine example of Islamic style architecture and sculpture. The sculptures can be classified into four categories: mosques, tombs, palaces and forts. Some of the Hindu temples that have been built nowadays have little importance in terms of art.
