of Hyderabad in 1591. At that time it marked the centre
of the city. Another famous attraction is the Golconda
Fort which gets its name from the Telugu words “Golla
Konda” meaning “Shepherd’s Hill”.
The origins of the fort can be traced back to the Yadava
dynasty of Deogiri. It has been rebuilt many times and
its history is told today in a fascinating sound and
light show there.
