Heritage Walk on Feb 3: Golconda’s Final Siege and Fall


2019 marks 500 years of the establishment of the Qutb Shahi dynasty in Hyderabad at the historic Golconda Fort. While most of us know that their end came at the hands of the Mughals in 1687, how it played out is a fascinating story of warfare, heroics, determination and finally treachery from within during the reign of the last king Abul Hassan, who was known as Tana Shah.

The walk will be held at the now isolated and forgotten Patancheru Darwaza, which is one of the eight doors or entrances of the fort, so that attendees can get an idea of what transpired during Golconda’s final siege.

Venue: February 3, 7 AM – 9 AM, Golconda Fort entrance, Hyderabad
