Hiking To The Top of Golconda Fort - Part 1

Golkonda, meaning shepherd hill, was built consecutively by three dynasties.

My wife and I visited India for the first time in 2010. Our first stop was Hyderabad. On Saturday January 23rd we drove to Golconda Fort (a few miles west of Hyderabad). The city of Golconda was the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Golconda.
