The Battle of Raichur was a battle fought between the Vijayanagar Empire and the Sultanate of Bijapur in 1520 CE in the town of Raichur, India. It resulted in a decisive victory for Vijayanagar forces and the Bijapur ruler was defeated and pushed across the river Krishna. [6] This battle had far-reaching effects; it weakened the power and prestige of the Adil Shahi and got the ruler to make alliance with other Deccan sultanates powers to take on Vijayanagara and defeat it at the Battle of Talikota.[7]
