Golconda Fort is a beautiful fort in Hyderabad. Golconda is a kind of a place where you can enjoy the epic trekking to the fort and end your evening by watching the beautiful light show which will depict history about India and Aurangzeb :)

Golconda Fort is an  example of brilliant engineering and magical architecture. It is located at a distance of 10 odd Kms from the main city. The name of the fort has been derived from the Telugu words "Golla" and "Konda" which together means 'Shepherd's Hill'.

It is the most important tourist destination for people visiting Hyderabad :)

Day 1

My friend Mayank was in Hyderabad for some days and I was also located there in Feb Month of 2017.

We made this plan to visit the most reputed place in Hyderabad called the Golconda Fort. And trust me it was just too much fun :)

We took a direct uber from gachibolwi to Golconda it cost us around 200 odd Rs. 

The ticket was only around RS 15 for the entry. And there is an option where you can buy the tickets for the light and sound show from inside only.  The tickets for light and sound show was RS 80 for adult. 

It was one amazing little trek in the fort, going through the hill. 

Came across various amazing structures and architecture. 

The outermost enclosure is called Fateh Darwaza meaning Victory gate, after Aurangzeb’s army marched successfully through this gate. At Fateh Darwaza one can witness fantastic acoustical effects, which is one among the many famous engineering marvels at Golconda. Clapping your hand at a certain point near the dome entrance reverberates which is heard clearly at the hill top pavilion, almost one kilometer away. This served as a warning note to the inhabitants of the fort of any impending danger, Ofcourse it now amuses visitors.

Climbing further up, one can spot the stunning Deccan plateau and also get a bird's eye view of the bustling and lit-up city.Touring the fort, one can sample the rich flavour of its history, which saw the throne change hands among various dynasties.

Apart from this there was also enough spots which were too good for the images. The fort's upkeep was terrific. I would highly recommend going to the top of the fort as the view is magnificent.

We end up the day by watching one epic light and sound show and trust me it's a must :)

Overall Golconda is one amazing place to visit if you wanna have fun and know some history as well.
