Modern day poet Mr. Iqbal Asif describes Bijapur in his poetry

There are many good cities in the world,
But you cannot find in any other the domes of Bijapur,
Talking to the sky.

From fortified wall to fortified wall,
Three times one inside the next,
It is a city of shimmering light.

Yes, Bijapur received injuries at the hands of time,
Yet despite all, it is a city of the highest courage.

For why should not Asif love its relics,
This city of his ancestors’ desire?
