The Golconda Fort is situated in the outskirts of Hyderabad, away from the hustle-bustle of the city. If you are looking for spending a quiet afternoon, the fort is really a good place. Luckily when I visited the place, there were not many tourists. So it was good to spend the afternoon with tranquility. Walking up the fort was also a great experience.
Public transport in transport is very well organized. And you can find a large number of buses to the Golconda Fort. The general public are very good to the tourists. In fact, they had guided me to catch the bus from the right place.
I reached Golconda fort, somewhere in the afternoon. I took a small lunch before entering the fort. There are plenty of small restaurants outside the fort. Since I was not very hungry, I took a very light meal.
From the top of the fort, one can see the city of Hyderabad. Personally I feel that if a city has a small fort or a mountain in its outskirts, it is one of the best places to be. One can sense that a mountain is quietly watching what’s happening underfoot.
