The Nizams built this architectural marvel in the 1500s and today, it may not be protecting us from invasions but it continues to astound us with all its history and beauty. This fort is located within Hyderabad and in the outskirts so you can take a trip to the fort easily any time of the day. It is in fact one of the major tourist attractions of the city. While you are here, you should not miss out on some of these structures within the fort such as the Qutb Shahi Palace, Fateh Darwaza, Rani Mahal and Durbar Hall.
GOLKONDA FORT, it got its name from GOL means ROUND and KONDA means HILL, and its a fort in southern india and was the capital of Qutb Shahi dynasty of Hyderabad.The place is also known for its world's famous gems like the Koh-i-Noor Diamond, the Hope Diamond,the Nassak Diamond and the Noor-ul-Ain Diamond
After visiting Birla temple,we embarked towards Golconda Fort.One can definitely burn all the calories gained while gorging on hyderabadi delicacies by hiking to reach top of Golconda Fort. The Fort is beautiful. The only recommendation from my side if you are visiting this place on a sunny day is to carry a cap, sunglasses and to wear really comfortable footware like sports shoes else it is not easy to climb so many stairs to reach the top.
