You will never forget this place. It is an architectural wonder for the techie, and a fascinating experience for the history buff. Get a guide, as he can tell you and show you things that you will miss on your own. Clap under the dome to hear the chatter, and then stand at the top in the Kings quarters and listen to people talk 500 meters away in the entryway. See how the queen lived (seperately from the king). The water tanks and pipes, stone nails used for fortification, sound engineering, etc show the immense thought and talent that went into building this massive structure. Simply fascinating!

Golkonda has some interesting history - this is a must see for all local residents as well. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and provide for an entertaining trip into the fort.

The stunning part of the fort is the architecture- just simply cutting edge of construction engineering. It still amazes everyone in this day and age.

Try avoiding hot days and carry some water if going with the kids!
