The Adil Shahi Sultans who ruled for nearly 200 years in Bijapur had expended their utmost authority, almost exclusively, on architecture and the allied arts, each Sultan endeavored to excel his predecessor in the number, size, or splendor of his building projects. As a result, the buildings seen in and around Bijapur Fort and the town have been rightly called as the Agra of South India.
Asar Mahal - Asar Mahal, built by Muhammed Adil Shah in late 1640s, used to serve as a Hall of Justice. It is also known as Mithari and Asar Mahal and stands with the support of four pillars. Moreover, hair from the beard of Prophet Muhammad was also used at this place. Owing to this, it is a place of worship for Muslim devotees.

Ali Adil Shah of the Adil Shahi dynasty wanted to build a mausoleum of unmatched architectural quality.

Prayers are offered, both at the mosque and at the mausoleum.
