One of the most important tourist spots in the city. We were even brought here on a school excursion, the one time we weren't off to the zoo. And even when you're a snotty schoolgoer, you can feel the spirit of the place, the peace. These are the Qutub Shahi tombs, the mausolea of the 'Sultans of Golconda', surrounded by the lovely landscaped gardens of Ibrahim Bagh. The tombs here consist mainly of the seven Qutub Shahi kings who ruled Golconda for nearly 170 years (all the kings except the last, who was a prisoner in the fortress of Daulatabad, near Aurangabad, when he died).
