The Fort is already a UNESCO world heritage site and needs no introduction but as I entered into the vicinity of the fort I realised that there was a sense of urgency regarding the development of the monument. It has been well preserved but there exists lot of scope for developing tourist friendly facilities in the vicinity of the fort.
The Golconda region is also famed for its magnificent diamonds. The Golconda fort vaults in their prime were filled with precious diamonds like the Kohinoor and the Darya-e-Noor. These diamonds weighed close to 185 carats and still are the biggest in the world. The Darya-e-Noor now sit on the Iran’s Royal Crown and the Kohinoor was stolen by the British. These diamonds have number of mysterious tales associated with them.
