Wondering how the peoples in History managed such enormous spaces where we fight for Inches. Entrance of the Fort is well maintained. Need more maintenance, to keep it shining over years.

The views at the top are awesome. Ofcourse there is a little toil involved in reaching the top but it's worth it for the views. The Light and Sound Show is awesome.

Wow was the first word we uttered when the full view of this historical relic unfolded in front of us! The next few hours were fully engrossing all the way to the top. The trek was at times steep and challenging, particularly for the elderly and ladies. In spite of the difficulties, enthusiastic individuals and small groups steadily made it... More

Nice enough as far as old ruins go. We had a guide who was very knowledgeable which was definitely worth the extra cost. Tip: Bring water with you on your tour - once you are away from the main gate there is no way to have a drink, and it gets very hot walking around for a couple of hours.

What makes Golconda different from the many other forts dotted across south India is the fact that it is huge, splendid, and still standing strong. It is well maintained and you can easily imagine the history unfold as you take a tour of this place. Govt. approved guides are available at fixed price and it is highly recommended to hire... More

I heard the night time laser and sound shows are pretty good. But I wanted it more sort of an excurssion, so chose the daytime. Has a lot of stairs to reach the top (Diwani Kaas and Aam). The view from the top is not extraordinary but ok. The highlight though is the Ramdas Prison which according to folklore belonged... More
