About The Event

The places covered: The Qutub Shahi Tombs: A little away from the Golconda Fort are a cluster of tombs, the most authentic evidence of the Qutub Shahi architectural traditions. Ensconced amidst picturesque and landscaped gardens, known as Ibrahim bagh, is the grandeur of these tombs dedicated to the memory of the seven Qutub Shahi kings who ruled Golconda for nearly 170 years. The tombs are an unequivocal manifestation of the structural engineering talent of the Qutub Shahi period.
