Qutub Shahi Tombs- Cost: Rs 10 (Entry tickets) | Time: 10 am to 5 PM
Serene and secluded in the middle of the town
The king and his men rests in peace here. (P.S.: As of January 2016 a major portion of the park was under renovation and restricted for public)
Qutub Shahi tombs are quite well maintained. Qutub Shahi tombs were built for seven Qutub Shahi Sultans and have distinct architecture of Persian style. There is a masjid and well maintained garden inside the compound. It is heaven for photographers who want to try their hands at architecture photography.
