  • In went here not knowing what to expect. It was like a poor man's Taj Mahal times about 10. There are loads of tombs, most in need of repair and maintenance. This was underway for some tombs, and I ca...  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.
  • 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.
  • Amazing place to visit. To get away from the bustle of the city. Could spend hours under a tree with a book. Highly recommend to visit around 4 and stay for the sunset. They close at 6pm sharp.
  • Nice historical place to visit. Maintenance is ok. Being in the middle of the city don't have to worry about amenities. Not sure if they are there somewhere, but did not see any rest rooms. Don't rely on Google maps for directions. It is next to Deccan park. We drove much further away because of wrong directions.
  • This place is located on the way to Golconda Fort. Where this is resting place of Shah's empire. It's quite and clean surrounded be trees. You have to walk inside and map are located inside which guide you on the way. Right now restoration is going on. There is entry ticket. I will suggest to go first to Fort then to see this tomb.
