Golconda Fort, Hyderabad

4.3
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. Using our international travel planner, Hyderabad attractions like Golconda Fort can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The castle has a long history, a variety of styles of architecture is very charming, moving landscape, each step has a different landscape. Because the quaint swashes are dust, wear sneakers and trousers.
