📍 India
Golkonda Fort, located 11 kilometers from the city of Hyderabad in India, is an ancient citadel and former capital of the Qutb Shahi dynasty. Built on a granite hill and surrounded by huge walls, this fortress is famous for its profound engineering marvels, and is renowned as an architectural feat. Within the fort walls are four different forts, the most noteworthy of which is the inner fort, constructed during Ibrahim Qutb Shah's reign in 1543.

The fort complex has an awe-inspiring acoustics structure, where a hand clap at any particular point in the wall below the main entrance to the fort can be heard clearly at the Bala Hissar Pavilion, which is almost one kilometer away from the entrance. The fortress also has several other monuments inside, like the mosques of Taramati and Badshahi, a Shiva temple, Charminar, and more. All these structures provide a unique insight into the history of the fort, and are excellent sites to explore.
