Medak Fort

Medak Fort is attached to Haritha Resort. This fort is just an abandoned one but has a great history. History and architecture lovers will definitely stop by here and also if you like to get good view of Medak you should get to the top of the fort too, you will like it.

NOTE: Careful with your belongings, there are a lot of monkeys around.

A weekend drive to Medak from Hyderabad
Jun 2019 • Friends
We started from Hyderabad around 7am and had our breakfast on the way. It is suggested to start early as it becomes difficult to walk and capture those scenes once temperature turns hot. We were in fort till 11am and started to Medak Church which is located in the middle of the town. There are plenty of restaurants available around Church. Had our lunch and started back to Hyderabad. TS Tourism (Haritha) resorts are available for night stays in fort and various North Indian dishes are available for lunch after 1pm.

an excursion to the fort , but not only
Aug 2018
I visited it after the monsoon , when the landscape from the fort is stunningly green . Nice excursion ; very quiet . You see monkeys swimming and playing in the old water reservoir . You can take advantage of the trip to the fort from Hyderabad , to make a stop on the way at the ancient mosque of Darga , close to Komtur lake .

I like this place
Jul 2018 • Solo
I’m a fort mania, and this is my 110th visit to a fort in India.

I like this place.
Small efforts of stepping up the hill are required.
At the top, enjoyed nice views of the area with a town and greenery.

Probably not for everyone if you expect a lot from here.
If you can enjoy nice views and breeze, this can be yours.

Medak trip
Jun 2018 • Family
I had recently moved to hyderabad and was looking for places nearby to explore. My father, husband and myself set off on this trip in our car. We departed hyderabad by 1430 and it took us about three hours to get to medak (had a small tea break in between). I had booked an ac standard room in haritha resort adjacent to medak Fort. We explored the Fort in the evening after we reached. Its a good climb to the top and the view is beautiful.
The room in the resort was neat. As we were three of us, we requested for an extra mattress and they obliged. Be prepared to see a lot of lizards and small insects outside the room at night as they are attracted to the light. Thankfully we didn't have any insects inside the room. The resort offers good food. However I would highly recommend hotel Chandra bhavan (not quite sure about the name, but its next to the main entrance to medak cathedral, diagonally opposite to bawarchi). It's a veg restaurant. And the meal was just awesome, for 100 bucks (per meal). There's an amul parlour right next to it to have ice cream as well.
The next morning we headed to pocharam dam after breakfast. It was very serene with hardly any visitors. So we spent a good half hour by the water.
We Proceeded next to the deer breeding park close to the dam. We have to take our own vehicle inside accompanied by a guide. Saw a lot of spotted deer, sambhar deer and peacocks. There is a view point from where we can see the pocharam reservoir. It's very beautiful. The recommended time to visit the park according to the guides is by 1015 as they would have just fed the animals, so they will come up front.
We then went to the medak cathedral. The architecture is beautiful with glass paintings in the interior. However as the Sunday mass was in progress the church was overcrowded. So we didn't ho inside.
We had lunch in restaurant I mentioned before and then checked out of the resort. We then headed to singur dam in sangareddy. This dam is much larger than pocharam and more popular. There was quite a crowd. You can get into the water if you feel like, so carry an extra set of clothes. However we took a walk on the dam and spent some time taking photos.
We stopped in the nearby haritha resort for a cup of tea and then drove back to hyderabad.
On the whole it was a trip to remember! 😊

Magnificent Architecture
Mar 2018 • Family
I went to Medak Fort. It is a huge structure located on the top of a hill. One has to climb more than 500 steps to reach the top of the fort, which occupies 100 acres on the hilly area. Medak Fort is noted for its architectural magnificence. It is great place to go.

Short getaway from Hyderabad

The drive is about 2-2.5 hours from Hyderabad Gachibowli via the Outer Ring Road & Nagpur Highway. Road condition is great. The fort is beautiful and definitely worth the drive. The ruins, gates & cannons are a good spectacle.

Not much to explore
Jan 2018 • Family
Medak fort is in ruins and does not offer much to explore and write about and can be a given a miss if you are on 1 day trip.
