The Siege of Badami (1–20 May 1786) was conducted by forces of the Maratha Empire and the Nizam of Hyderabad against a Mysorean garrison at Badami, a fortified town in present-day northern Karnataka in India, during the Maratha-Mysore War. The allied army, numbering as many as 50,000 and led by the Maratha leader Hari Pant, stormed the city on 20 May; the fortress surrendered immediately thereafter.
