Golconda was originally a mud fort, which was rebuilt by the first three Qutab Shahi kings over a period of 62 years. The fort is well known for its ingenious water supply system and acoustics among other attractions like the palaces and the famous Fateh Rahben gun. The exclusive Sound & Light Show takes you right back in time.
Qutab Shahi Tombs: The tombs of the legendary Qutab Shahi kings are at a distance of a kilometer from Banjara Darwaza of the Golconda Fort. These tombs are said to be the oldest historical monuments in Hyderabad.
