About Golconda Fort

A medieval fort overlooking the rest of city, Golconda is one of the historical monuments to visit in Hyderabad. The fort is constructed of mud on a hill nearly 400ft high. The fort derives its name from a Telugu word, which means Shepherd’s Hill. The Golconda Fort houses four different Forts. The striking feature of the fort includes the relics of armories, multiple fortification layers, mosques, reservoirs, granaries, audience chambers, and royal dwellings. One of the most amazing features of the fort is its acoustics, which is a unique signaling device incorporated in its construction. The light and sound show at the fort adds grandeur to it. The structure attracts visitors for its palaces, the famous Fateh Rahben - one of the cannons used by Aurangzeb and ingenious water supply system.
