Golconda Fort was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Golconda which flourished in the 14th to 16th century. It is situated 11 kilometers from Hyderabad, the capital of the state of Andhra Pradesh. With walls ranging from 17 to 34 feet broken by 87 semi-circular bastions, some reaching 60 feet in height, and built on a granite hill that is 400 feet high, it remains one of India’s most magnificent fortress complexes.

Golconda Fort was first built by the Kakatiya dynasty from 945-70 as part of their western defenses [1] along the lines of the Kondapalli Fort. The city and fortress are built on a granite hill that is 120 meters (400 ft) high and is surrounded by massive battlements.

Golkonda fort is one of the great attractions of hyderabad.golkonda is also bult by kakatiya dynasty.it has a great ancient history.and it the place were Koh-i-Noor and Hope diamonds were stored by kings.it consists of four distinct forts with a 10 km long outer wall.This worked as a warning note to the royals in case of an attack.Bala Hissar Gate is the main entrance to the fort located on the eastern side.The tombs of the Qutb Shahi sultans lie about one kilometer north of Golkonda's outer wall. These structures are made of beautifully carved stonework, and surrounded by landscaped gardens. They are open to public and receive many visitors.The graceful gardens of the fort may have lost their fragrance, for which they were known 400 years ago, yet a walk in these former gardens should be in your schedule when exploring the past glories of Golkonda Fort
