An amazing place with lots of history. Quite easy to access and has wheelchair access to quite a distance which has been recently installed. Lots of improvement over the years. The sound and light show is a must do..Too and brings all the stories together nicely.

A freind from Hyderabad took me here to share the history of the area. We walked the grounds on a very warm day but every step was grounded in history. A very special place.
