The Golkonda fort
THE GOLKONDA FORT
The Golkonda fort map
The fort is located at a very high location of the city and visible from various parts of the city. The apex of the fort is where the king used to stay.

In the evening, the A.P. tourism department arranges a light show which was immensely informative. The show narrated the story of the fort, the people that stayed there who have now became nothing but a part of history. The narration took our minds several years behind the time wheel. I felt as if I was one of the inseparable part of those times. The cries, those voices, those beautiful lights enhanted me. Above all the Bose-speakers added charm in the special effects of the entire show.
THE QUTUB SHAHI TOMBS
We also visited the famous Qutub Shahi tombs just 1 km away from the Golkonda.

And here comes the masterpiece...
It was a weary day and I was really exausted but contented. The visit gave me one of the most valuable information about the city and its people.
