Amazing historical monument . Ver well preserved . Do ensure you climb to the top tip if you are scared of narrow pathways a and stairs stay away it’s a very steep and high rise stair set . Elderly with knee or leg pain stay away as you cannot return as it a one way stair once started will have to go to the top . Once on top will have to return as well . The view from the top is magnificent. And is worth all the efforts . The surrounding is packed with shops and sellers . There is a tea shop do get tea from there and the famous Hyderabad biscuits . There is a mix biscuits box which has all the flavors . They do t allow bags so either don’t take bags or sacs else keep it as the deposit station for 20 rs an hour . It’s a no vehicle done do have to park a bit far and then walk .
This is one of the significant historical identity of Hyderabad but local administration needs to improvement and develop this places smooth functioning for tourist and visitor so they can get more information and awareness. An iconic monument of Hyderabad. Unfortunately, there was heavy security the day we visited this. Loved the bazaar around this. Great place to buy bangles (Indian)
Truly an amazing place. I was stunned by the beauty, the carvings and how they've still maintained that place so well. I visited this place just some days before Independence Day.. and the best part was entry was free. If you're visiting Hyderabad or planning to visit you should definitely go here. not to forget the street shopping here, very cheap and affordable with a wide range of items starting with clothing, shoes and many more things.
The landmark of Hyderabad. Always too crowded. We must take care off our belongings. It is one of the best shopping points of Hyderabad. We can get jewels, dress materials and so many other things in very cheap rate. Bargain is recommended to get things in the best rate. Recommended to visit in evening time to experience the best. Local cuisine is also worth the try.
What a place! This is a must visit for anyone in the city and the colours and atmosphere in an evening are superb. I’m reliably informed that weekends are particularly busy, and given the number of people on the mid-week day I visited I’d encourage to avoid too, but it’s well worth battling the crowds to get into the centre of the action. There’s so many market sellers although none are too pushy, live performances and a generally friendly vibe. The history is great, so many good photo opportunities and a real insight into the local culture. Highly recommended!
