Golconda fort is one of Hyderabad’s most visited and iconic places. Its entire landscape is extremely beautiful and majestic. It is situated on top of a hill and therefore there is no surprise it is saying it gives you the best view of the city of pearls. This mighty fort was built in the year 1143 across an area of 3 square kilometers by the Kakatiya kings and later went on to be the capital of Qutub Shahi Kings. This fork was earlier called Mankal and later as Golconda. The word Golconda comes from "Golla" and "Konda", meaning Sheppard and hilltop. There is an interesting story behind the origin of the fort and its name, a Sheppard boy once saw a magical idol of god on this hill and the king who got to know about it promised to build a fort and named it Golconda. This fort has extreme royalty and is said to have mysteries associated with it. Out of them the rumored tunnel to Charminar is the most interesting one. It’s amazing to know that such a brilliant architectural wonder exists. A hand clap at a point below the dome of the fort at the entrance can be heard clearly till the highest point of this mighty fort. All these things make Golconda an interesting place to visit and definitely blow away one’s mind with the cultural heritage and treasures it processes, therefore there is no astonishment in getting to know that this architectural excellence is under consideration for UNESCO’s world heritage sites. With so much history and grandeur associated with it this is a place you should not miss if you’re visiting HYDERABAD. Apart from its captivating beauty that attracts the tourist for site seeing, the sound and light show is something that is worth your while.
