  • It is just a tombs and nothing interesting to view. It will hardly take 5 minutes to go around. Not recommend to travel only for this place. If you get this place on your way, then you can visit.  more »

  • A fairly large place on the way to Golconda Fort housing the seven tombs of the Qutb Shahi dynasty that reflects the aura of bygone times. It is one of the most important historical places in a trip to Hyderabad. The majestic trees around the tombs add to the beauty of the place. It takes more or less two hours to complete the campus tour. However accepting a guide to know the importance of the place may be a good decision for the tourist. There is an entry fee for visiting the place.
  • Nothing much to see here, other than tombs of historic value. The place is full of lush green gardens. Decently maintained. Good for a visit on a balmy winter evening.
  • The visit to tombs was a peaceful visit. You'll feel very relaxed if you are a kind of person who doesn't like crowd. There is a beautiful essence in that air.
  • The Qutb Shahi tombs are one of those “must see” places when you are visiting Hyderabad. They look absolutely amazing and leaves you with a much better understanding of the Qutb Shahi dynasty. I would highly recommend paying a guide to show you around (I paid 300 rupees so you have an idea of what it costs) so that you fully understand the history and marvel of the tombs. Definitely worth the trip! Also- it takes about an hour and half to tour the whole grounds if you are walking fast.
  • Summary-The place is nice, but maintained poorly. There is an entry fee of nominal amount. There are many smaller tombs apart from the 7 major ones. Should not take more than 1-2 hours to cover the entire place. The only drawback is, it is maintained by the State Government(not ASI) & has lot of local people influence.
