1. Golkonda Fort

A visit to Golkonda Fort yesterday evening was a treat.  Just 11 kilometers away from Hyderabad, this famous fort was built in 13th Century by Kakatiya king. 

To avoid crowds, we started climbing form right side instead of left, and came across many enchanting views. It is a stone and mud fort and certainly a place worth visiting.

The Sound and Light Show at 7.00 PM everyday is good enough to create more interest in Golkonda.

As my team was not interested in History we went exploring without a guide and except for one information board, the visitors are left alone to find out the information.
I do not  know what many of these structures mean and what they were used for.

A second visit is a must. 


  1. seems interesting..

  2. Yes, you will keep on clicking :-)

  3. tHe photos are lovely .. some more descriptions would have been better ...

  4. Thanks Indranijee for your visit and comment. Actually I write two more blogs (one each in English and Marathi) - where I use many more words. For a change, thought that this blog should have limited words. However, I understand that I should have provided at least some links. Maybe, will consider it next time.

  5. I have visited this fort. The structure beautifully photographed,looks like a garrison. It could be a stable also.

  6. Garrison/stable/place for shop.. anything is possible.
