The place is also known as 7 tombs, where a whole family of rulers were buried. There are individual building for significant kings. The area is not maintained properly. If done in a informative way, this can be a great spot.

You would get to read this at the entrance... The tombs form a large cluster and stand on a raised platform. The tombs are domed structures built on a square base surrounded by pointed arches, a distinctive style that blends Persian, Pashtun and Hindu forms. The tombs are structures with intricately carved stonework and are surrounded by landscaped gardens. The... More

Located about a kilometer north from Golconda Fort, the Qutub Shahi tombs represent the most authentic and majestic display of the Qutub Shahi dynasty architectural traditions today. The grandeur of the tombs is ensconced amidst the beautiful and picturesque landscape and gardens of Ibrahim Bagh, and the tombs themselves are dedicated to the seven Qutub Shahi kings who ruled Golconda...

On the way to Golkonda Fort, stop at the tombs of Hyderabad royalty, a quiet, contemplative site. The site was deserted on a Monday afternoon, and felt like a smaller version of Humayun’s Tomb in Delhi. The ASI is restoring the site – both buildings and gardens. Judging from the first tomb, it will be beautiful when finished. Unfortunately, we... More

Had read that the tombs were closed on Friday. However, since we were already at the Golconda Fort decided to drive by and were rewarded to find them open. I am glad that we did. Even in their current condition they are pretty impressive. I think they will be amazing when the current 10 year restoration effort is complete.
