Had read that the tombs were closed on Friday. However, since we were already at the Golconda Fort decided to drive by and were rewarded to find them open. I am glad that we did. Even in their current condition they are pretty impressive. I think they will be amazing when the current 10 year restoration effort is complete.

We walked to the tombs from Golkonda Fort but catching an auto is probably best. The Tombs are massive stone domes that you can see from the Fort and further. They are magnificently built with beautiful carvings and paintings. One has scaffolding but still worth going. Full of history and awe.

A great historical place to be with majestic tombs and awesome karigaris on the minarets.The gachi bowli,i.e the well was under restoration but yet was a good site. the museum is also good to explore.But neatness is to be maintained.Government needs to ban plastics out in such a great historical place.

These tombs are said to be the oldest historical monuments in Hyderabad. The Qutub Shahi tombs represent the most authentic and majestic display of the Qutub Shahi dynasty architectural traditions today. Timings: 9.30 am... More

Our taxi driver stopped here on the way to the fort and it was worth the diversion. First, I picked up a guide at the front gate that did a good job walking us around and explaining what we were looking at. That was very useful as there were no signs indicating what was there. He also then came up... More

Went here after roaming around in Golkonda fort. and trust me, this turned out to be much, much better place than Golkonda... The tombs are in quite good condition and the jumble of arches for each building is really fantastic....worth looking for is the mosque within. the thing that strikes you most is how soon even mighty kings can get...
