Wat je gaat doen

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.

Yunus

I'm a journalist (reporter) who has been writing about Hyderabad's heritage and history regularly. I the city's lesser known history on my own for my blog The Hyderabad History Project (and on Insta), where I make sure to post only authentic and reliable information. Being a Hyderabadi, and thanks to my job, I know my city in and out. More importantly, I am quite well-read and well-versed with the history of Hyd and our founding monarchs. I conduct history walks across the city every weekend to create awareness about our city's history and founders. The idea is to make people understand the kind of cultural confluence that existed between the city's Persian founders and the locals, which you need to learn if you really want to understand Hyderabad. The best place to start that is from the Golconda fort, where our history begins from.
