This monument is huge...in its sheer size, history and culture. The broken walls tell the glory of the kakatiya dynasty.

Knowing the history of the monument your are visting only makes you understand the place and people of the then time.To understand the history, you can hire a guide or buy a guide book.

This amazing fort not only appeals to your artistic side, but also to the fitness freak in you. 4kms and 300 steps wont be a picinc, so pack in your sneakers (both footwear and food) and water bottles.

And once your reach the top of the fort, you can look down on the magnificent Hyderabad as the kings once did.
