Golconda fort

Golconda fort – The mighty Golconda fort, a majestic monument on the outskirts of Hyderabad city, speaks of a great cultural heritage of 400 years. The historical legend of Golconda Fort has it that before the city of Hyderabad was built, the whole Deccan was ruled from the Golconda Fort. Built by Muhammad Quli Qutub Shah in 1525, the magnificent Golconda Fort lies in western outskirts of Hyderabad and is one of the best places to witness the bygone glory of cultural and historical richness of Hyderabad.

The Qutb Shahi Tombs

The Qutb Shahi Tombs – The rulers of the Qutb Shahi dynasty had a tradition of constructing their tombs during their lifetime. The Emperors tried to outdo their predecessor and the magnificence of the architecture advanced over time. The tombs tower over the landscape majestically. This architecture is a fascinating mix of Persian and the local styles. Remnants of the blue tile work on some of these elegant structures give us a peek into the richness of what was a trademark of this dynasty.

Charminar

Charminar – Built by Mohammad Quli Qutub Shah in 1591, Charminar was said to be the centre around which Hyderabad was once built. This majestic architectural monument is said to be built to commemorate the eradication of plague from Hyderabad.

Mecca Masjid

Mecca Masjid – One of the largest mosques in India, Mecca Masjid has a capacity to accommodate about 10,000 worshippers. The biggest mosque in Hyderabad, Sultan Muhammad Qutub Shah started the construction of this mosque. The works continued during the reigns of Abdullah Qutub Shah and Abul Hassan Tana Shah and was finally completed by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in 1694.
