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.

  • Beautiful fort, in complete ruins and not been taken care of. Its a massive fort with broken, unknown history spread over 500-700 years. Its not been kept in a best shape as vandals have written...

  • Good place to spend weekend time. Historical significance. But can be well maintained as they are charging entry ticket. Ticket should be online payment through QR scanner. It will be much easier for visitors. Great view from top. Keep water with you at summer time.
  • 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. 👍🏻
