plan a trip to the golconda fort. the ambience around the fort is amazing...
Built by Mohammed Quli Qutb Shah in 1525, the Golconda Fort epitomises the opulent nawabi culture of the time. Famous features of Golconda includes its system of acoustics - a hand clap at a certain point below the dome at the entrance reverbarates and can be heard clearly at the Bala Hissar, the highest point almost a kilometre away...
The impregnable fort was cradled by many dynasties and it was of strategic importance to most of the rulers. In 1518, when the Qutb Shahi dynasty was found, Golconda was made its capital. The subsequent generations saw Golconda being fortified further with several additions and the formation of a beautiful city within.
The fortress city within the walls was famous for the diamond trade and famous Ko-hi-noor diamond, which now lies embeded in the crown of the queen of england is said to have come from here.
