These marble tombs are a moving part of the history of Hyderabad and are exquisitely decorated. The setting of white stone is very serene and, when we visited, we were the only visitors so we could appreciate the beauty in a peaceful moment.

From the outside it doesn't look like much and most people bypass it to go check out Golkonda fort. The number of tombs here and the beauty of each individual tomb is mind blowing. The tombs are well maintained, the details and patterns are stunning and if you get a guide (there is an old man who looks after the... More

Sunset was very dramatic with the sun setting over the Mosque and the Call to Prayer, plus men doing their ablutions and then praying . Second time was in morning with birds singing after a rain…. saw our first Neem Tree ( read... More

We went to the tombs before going to Golconda Fort.The tombs were magnificent - fit for royalty. We needed to spend one to two hours to fully cover the area.

I was totally captured by the old world architecture and photog friendly access to the tombs. A classic India experience with old world architecture and modern day garbage strewn about. On a really positive note, I was there in August of 2014 and they are currently refinishing a few of the tombs. There were stone masons working in the court... More

We were hijacked by a very dominant tour guide and ended paying £20.00 to him - far in excess of his value. the buildings were interesting - he was dreadful!

What strikes when you enter the Paigah tombs is the tranquility that welcomes you. Interned here are people who were served by battalions of soldiers and servants yet the melancholic solitude pierces through your heart and tel you that hard fact of life " you may live among millions but you rest alone". In a nonchalant bye lane where the... More

The tombs are off the beaten track and difficult to find, but are very beautiful once you're there. I really enjoyed this set of tombs, and am very glad I went. It might be difficult to get to if you're crunched for time. Many of the auto drivers don't know this location, and we had to drive around a bit... More
