This place is supposed to be a heritage site, but the government of telangana does not even bother to keep this place clean. There is a small part in which there is literally all kinds of non vegeterian food cooked. When i asked the authorities, they told that some local people just barged in and did all the mess.

It was during extended Pongal vacation when I had absolutely nothing to do, and felt a bit puzzled up with the hustle bustle of life, I decided to visit this fort riding absolute solo. This place starts getting your attention the very moment you enter the main gate. The slopes and the rough descents of this mountain were next to... More

They seem to accumulate and burn the trash in the fort, it is disgusting. The smoke can affect health of people. The parking situation outside... More

When we initially saw the pathway to the heights of Golconda Fort, we felt that it would become too tiring and that we would not able to reach the top. But fortunately, we were so engrossed in the sights around us that we never felt tired along the way. At the top, one could see the entire city of Hyderabad... More
