Golconda Fort Top offers exciting views of the living city and the city in ruins!!

Golconda, a ruined city and a national heritage site is situated about 15 kms from the heart of Hyderabad city.

Golconda Ruins and the city of Hyderabad behind it
This city and its fort can be explored at leisure in half a day and during this exploration one has to ascend the various steps of the fort to reach the top.

And it is here from the top and during the climb that one gets excellent aerial views of both the city in ruins ‘Golconda’ and the thriving city beyond ‘Hyderabad’.

View from Midway climb at Golconda Fort
The fort, within which the Golconda city is located has quite a large perimeter and this perimeter is made up of rocks, ruins, surviving structures and greenery.

View of Golconda Campus
The area beyond that are the immediate human settlements and the local baazars. The skyscrapers in the horizon are the buildings and organizations that form the Information Technology Park of Hyderabad. The really green belt is the army area.
