GolKonda Fort, Hyderabad, India

Golkonda Fort, Hyderabad, India

So…excited…yes, this is a second blog from my side on the travel destination, but actually, this is not a blog, this is a Vlog because I came with the complete video shoot. There is a huge demand from foreign travelers regarding Indian heritage, Indian forts, Indian culture, so this time we picked up Golkonda Fort this is in Hyderabad, South India.
The name of the fort has been derived from the Telugu words “Golla” and “Konda” which together means ‘Shepherd’s Hill’. Founded in the approximately 12th Century by the Kakatiya Kings, this massive Golconda Fort with eight gates and 87 bastions was later built by Qutub Shahi Kings.
The king constructed a mud fort around this holy spot and after 200 years, Bahamani rulers took possession of the place. Later the Qutub Shahi kings converted this into massive granite fort extending 5km in circumference. The fort is considered a mute witness to historic events. The Qutub Shahis reign at Golkonda ended in 1687 when it was run over by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, who intentionally left it in ruins.
The system of acoustics in the Fort is something which attracts each and every visitor. The sound of clapping at the entrance can be heard at the ‘Bala Hissar’ which is the highest point and almost a kilometer away. This system was apparently used for communication purposes, especially to alert the royal in case of an attack.
So ready to see…. here is the video…
