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.
