We will begin first with understanding the Persian history of the Qutb Shahi dynasty (which developed the fort and founded Hyd in 1591) and the history of the Golconda fort itself through old maps just before we enter the fort.
We will see the Indo-Persian mosque inside the fort, and will then climb up the fort to understand its contours and architecture. The tour will also give participants a good understanding of how Persian architecture blended with the local Telugu elements or designs, paving for something very unique.
You will learn not just the history, but also the socio-political background of the city and the region, and how Hyderabad was born out of that confluence. This tour will involve a long-ish climb towards the top of the fort, which includes seeing mosques and step-wells as well.
Climbing up the fort will also provide an understanding as to why it was almost impregnable (and how the founders of Hyderabad fought their final war in the fort till it was taken over by the Delhi-centered Mughal dynasty in 1687).
A visit to the fort is a must for anyone and everyone who is visiting Hyderabad, as it will provide a glimpse into how a walled-city existed.
