Even today, the cantonment, with its bungalows and barracks, has a significant military presence. Earlier, in the 16th and 17th centuries, Belgaum was a provincial centre under the Adil Shahi rulers of Bijapur the Marathas of Pune as well as the Mughals when they occupied this part of Karnataka. The Fort to the east is unusually elliptical in layout and its stone walls incorporate many resused temple blocks.
