Golconda Fort

Golconda fort is one of the major tourist attractions when one visits Hyderabad and as I was in the city of nizams on official work, I decided to pay a visit to the fort.  The fort is in ruins and has become a major attraction now.

The ruins contains 4 distinct forts and is 10 kms in ong outer wall with 87 semicircular bastions (some still mounted with cannons), eight gateways, and four drawbridges, with a number of royal apartments & halls, temples, mosques, magazines, stables, etc. inside.

I reached the fort after finishing my work. I could get only a couple of hours to visit. Those who are interested in knowing the history of the fort and significance of each structure can take a guide who’ll explain the history of the fort. Since I had less time i decided to just go ahead and take a few photos. As I was roaming the fort I heard a guide mention action scenes of the bollywood blockbuster Wanted was shot at the fort.

There is also a laser show at the fort after dark and those interested can buy the tickets for that.
