Golconda fort is the Nizam of Hyderabad regime witness of actions. Fort can be viewed with Guide who charges Rs.100-150/-.. It is better climb from Cement slabs side, which is right side of the fort. Evening light and shawdow play is not enjoyable due to Bats and mosquitoes and it is boring. Government needs to work on this..

At the top of the Fort you can see Hyderabad city, at the other side you would see some forest, very nice view. You can imagine its prosperous history by looking at the relic.

I takes some imagination to see what it might have looked like at its peak but worth it. The view from the top along with the cool breeze is one to remember.

We walked with a guide to the top of the fort. We were glad to have the guide explain things along the way and to demonstrate the impressive acoustics, strategically engineered throughout the fort. The views from the top are worth the effort. We highly recommend visiting Golkonda Fort, especially with a guide. The light show at the end was... More

Golconda Fort has history dating back few hundred years. Also the famous Kohinoor diamond was mined here. Its a nice place for a walk, well maintained. Kids can have fun seeing the old canons and the clap at the entrance which resonates and can be heard at the top of the fort.
