I had to go to Hyderabad to visit my brother - in - law. This was not my first visit to this city. I had been to Hyderabad when I was 10. At that time, I was more interested in playing with my cousins and brothers. This time , I wanted to see some things in Hyderabad. One of the beautful structure is Golkonda Fort which is situated about 10 kms west of the city. I took a tour guide who could speak some English. He did a pretty good job.

This magnificent fort(now only ruins) was built consecutively by 3 dynasties. It is one of the biggest fortress in the Deccan Plateau. It was built on a 400ft high hill.

Lakshmi..You have done a fine job with camera. I have been to Hyderabad a hundred of times but never got the inclination to visit Golkonda.. I keep on reserving to see them at leisure which never seems to come. When i attended an interview for a job in Rajasthan, the first question they asked me, was...can you tell an example for the architectural beauty of the Fort ? I read it somewhere and retained it in memory. The answer is that when you stand at the entrance of the fort and clap your hands, it can be clearly held at the top of the fort...that is how they used to communicate the arrival of people. The walls are arranged systematically to transmit the echo generated by the clap.. (IMG:style_emoticons/OurHFMEmot/smile.gif)

They have arranged a light and sound show at the Fort. That makes it much more interesting to watch...one of these days, i am going to be there for sure. Thanks...
