Qutb Shahi Tombs Photos

Nowhere in the world are there so many tombs in one place as here. You will find more than 20 tombs at one place, these tombs are famous as 'Seven Tombs'. These tombs erected in memory of the departed kings of Golconda are truly magnificent monuments that have stood the test of time and the vagaries of nature. These imposing marvels of architectural excellence stand as solemn reminders of the grandeur and glory of Golconda and the great kings who are buried here.

These tombs mark a unique architectural style which is a mixture of Persian, Pathan and Hindu forms. The arcades on all the sides and the pointed arches add to their beauty and grace. Situated 1 kilometre away from Golconda fort.
