Golconda Fort -a hallmark of excellence in military
As Bajrai Online Solutions is the online directory/ listing of Hyderabad. Today we are blogging about Golconda Fort – the symbol of Hyderabad
According to Wikipedia,
Golconda Fort, also known as Golkonda (lit. “round hill”), is a fortified citadel and an early capital city of the Qutb Shahi dynasty (c.1512–1687), located in Hyderabad, Telangana, India.
Golconda Fort was famous for its impenetrable structure. The fort is considered as a hallmark of excellence in military architecture.
Golconda Fort is one of the grandest forts in India. Because of the vicinity of diamond mines, especially the Kollur Mine, Golconda flourished as a trade centre of large diamonds, known as the Golconda Diamonds.
The region has produced some of the world’s most famous diamonds, including the colourless Koh-i-Noor (now owned by the United Kingdom), the blue Hope (United States), the pink Daria-i-Noor (Iran), the white Regent (France), the Dresden Green (Germany), and the colorless Orlov (Russia), Nizam and Jacob (India), as well as the now lost diamonds Florentine Yellow, Akbar Shah and Great Mogul.
