“Ruins of glorious past”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

It was 1 hour drive by auto from Begumpet (Rs. 150/- for whole auto). Its a large fort and will take whole day to explore if you want to see Nice Light and sound show around 6 PM. (Light and sound show, you will find at all major forts of India, that's nice initiative!).

“great fort of olden times”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

it is a nice monument, worth visiting but most of the part is not maintained properly by the authorities and beware of fraudy people roaming in that area to cheat the tourist

“Golconda Fort”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

What an amazing construction, and so important in the history of the area. Well worth the trek up to the top, with incredible views once you get there.

“Sound and Light Show is Worth a Visit”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

The Sound ad Light show in English starts at 7 PM (verify the timing before you go). It provides you a brief history of the place and gives you an idea of the times that were.

Make sure you have at least 1-2 hours before the show to explore the fort. The steps are quite steep at some places so make sure you wear sensible shoes which lets you have a good grip and carry a bottle of water too. You really don't need a guide to explain the place to you, esp if you plan to see the sound and light show later on. This is defnitely worth a visit, if you like exploring historic places and are okay with a bit of climbing.

“Very well maintained, seeped in history”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

Amazing, one of the few historical monuments that is so well maintained in India. Tons of history and fascinating stories - do get a guide. We got a good one, his stories made the place come live!
