Qutub Shahi Tombs

About Qutub Shahi Tombs

Quiet close from Golconda fort are the tombs of the seven Qutub Shahi rulers amidst the Ibrahim Bagh. The tombs are domed structures built on a square base surrounded by pointed arches. The galleries of the smaller tombs are of a single story while the larger ones are two storied. In the center of each tomb is a sarcophagus, which overlies the actual burial vault in a crypt below. The domes were originally overlaid with blue and green tiles, of which only a few pieces remain now. The tombs are surrounded with well laid out gardens. A tranquil sight. This is very near to Golconda Fort with walk able distance.
