#var:page_name# cover

From the ancient Kakatiyas, the Golconda fort has seen many dynasties - the Bahmanis, the Qutub Shahis and the Mughals. Large parts of the fort are still standing and are today a popular picnic spot with the locals.

Stories about the fort are a mix of history and myth - we will explore the most popular of them and try to understand which is which. For the photographically minded, the old fort and the ruins afford spectacular opportunities.

Is it true that the approach of enemies would be communicated to the citadel by clapping hands at the entrance? Was Ramdas actually imprisoned in the fort? And is it true that the fort has never been taken in a military action? We will talk about these and many more popular stories as we take a stroll around the premises.
