Golconda Fort in Hyderabad is an outstanding example of brilliant technology and magical architecture. It is located eleven kilometres from the city and is the most famous of all the sights in Hyderabad. The name of the fort is derived from the Telugu words "Golla" and "Konda", which together mean "hill of shepherds". Founded centuries ago by the Kakatiya Kings, this massive fort was later built with eight gates and 87 bastions by the Qutub Shahi kings.
