Know More about this tour

You will be picked up at your hotel in Hyderabad at 9:00 AM for morning departure or 2:00 PM for afternoon departure. After pickup you will be transferred to Golkonda Fort.

Golkonda Fort derives its name from a Telugu word "Golla Konda" meaning "shepherds hill". After the downfall of Baihmanis in AD1518, the fort became the capital of the Qutb Shahi kings (AD1518-1687). Golkonda Fort was built on a 400 ft. high hill and has three lines of massive fortification walls one within the other as well as eight imposing gateways. The well-planned township of Golconda located within the fort was one of the splendid cities famous during the medieval world for its extensive trade in gems and diamonds as attested to by foreigners including Marco Polo.

Later you will visit the Qutub Shahi Tombs. The tombs are domed structures built on a square base surrounded by pointed arches and have a distinctive style that blends Persian, Pashtun and Hindu. After visiting the dorm, you will be taken back to your hotel.

    The fort was amazing, as were the tombs. The guide was especially knowledgeable and spoke good English. It was fascinating to learn many details of those periods of history of that time and how Hyderabad came to be. The reason I took two stars off was because at the end we visited two retail establishments where I got ambushed with a an agressive full court press to buy stuff, when it was represented as a cultural and learning experience in the beginning. I don’t know about how you would have taken it, but I was taken by complete surprise and was very uncomfortable which detracted from the whole experience and left a bad taste in my mouth.

    I took several tours with Mr. Srinu, all of them very interesting, l learned about the culture, the history. The guide is very knowledgeable and ready to answer all India related questions, not just related to the place visited. Enjoyable!
