Nestled on top of a granite hill, Golconda Fort, the place that once held the famous Koh-i-noor diamond, overlooks the city of Hyderabad. The historic structure served as the capital of the Qutb Shahi dynasty in the 16th and 17th centuries, before being abandoned. Explore the massive stone ruins, enjoy the panoramic view of the city, or try out the fort’s famed acoustics; a clap from anywhere on the premises can be heard on the highest point of the fortress.

  • Historical landmark in Hyderabad. A must visit site. It was constructed by Qutb Shahi Dynasty under the Golconda Sultanate. It is very attractive, especially in evening when the fort is lighted.

  • A wonderful place to visit and explore, well-preserved and maintained by the Archeological Survey of India. This is the one place in Hyderabad, which will leave you spellbound. From the top of this fort, you can see the historic city of Hyderabad in all it's different colours. Experienced guides are available on payment, who can explain to you the various features and history of this magnificent fort. Strongly recommended to visit. 👍🏻
  • Best time to visit is in the morning or evening . Avoid going there between 12 to 3.. Take a guide.. the place is filled the marvelous secrets.. can only be experienced with guide. Guide charge 750 for half tour and 1000 for full tour... both are completely worth it.
