The Golconda Fort in photos

The Golconda Fort need no introduction. I kept my expectations high when going to Hyderabad, and the ancient complex was impressive indeed. Centuries after the peak of its glory, the fort doesn’t cease to humble visitors with its might, grandeur and powerful voice from the bygone era. Every part of it is filled with history and splendor –  chambers, halls, getaways, staircases, mosques and royal apartments. Tracing back to the middle ages, the fort was known as the capital of Qutb Shahi sultanat, a place of burgeoning diamond trade and a structure with amazing implementations of engineering skills. It would be enough to mentioned the acoustic effect enabling a hand clap to be heard almost a kilometer away. Showing you the Golconda Fort in photos, I hope you’ll get inspired to make a trip and feel the vibe of the place on your own. It’s definitively worth it!
