A Walk in the Ruins of the Golconda Fort

A Walk in the Ruins of the Golconda Fort

I visited the Indian city of Hyderabad a couple of months ago. It was my first trip to a city I had heard so much about. A city steeped in history, drenched in heritage and oozing culture at every turn. It was a friend’s wedding that finally took me to Hyderabad, but despite the limited time and packed schedule, I was determined to explore as much of it as I possibly could.

The History and Heritage of Hyderabad

The History and Heritage of Hyderabad

I’m on a quest to Take12Trips this year, and the challenge is in its final leg!!! :)

For Trip # 11 (Yay Me!), I flew to the city of Hyderabad in the last week of November, for another short weekend getaway. I was attending a friend’s wedding, so while most of my time in Hyderabad was spent at the festivities, there was no way I would be leaving without exploring at least some of the city’s many, many highlights.
