Digital desk. There are many such mysteries in the world, which no one has solved till today. Secrets that remain a challenge for science as well. Today we are going to tell you about one such mysterious place. Actually this place is a mysterious fort. This fort is one of the major tourist destinations in Hyderabad, its name is Golconda Fort. The fort is located about 9 km from the Hussain Sagar Lake, one of the largest man-made lakes in the country and is one of the most protected monuments in the region. The construction of this fort is said to have been completed in the 1600s, but the construction of it was started by the Kakatiya dynasty in the 13th century. This fort is known for its architecture, mythology, history and mysteries.
The construction of this fort has an interesting history attached to it. It is said that one day a shepherd boy found a statue on a hill. When the then ruler Kakatiya Raja came to know about the idol, he considered it a holy place and built a clay fort around it, which is known today as Golconda fort. Built on a 400 feet high hill, this fort has eight doors and 87 bastions. The Fateh Darwaza is the main gate of the fort, which is 13 feet wide and 25 feet long. The door has been made with steel spikes that protect it from elephants.
You can get an idea of the magnificent grandeur of this fort by looking at the Durbar Hall here, which is built on the top of the hill keeping in mind both the cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. To reach here one has to climb a thousand steps. The biggest secret of this fort is that it has been made in such a way that when someone claps on the floor of the fort, his voice is heard echoing from the Bala Hisar Gate throughout the fort. This place is also called ‘Talia Mandap’ or modern sound alarm.
It is believed that there is also a mysterious tunnel in the fort, which passes through the lowest part of the fort and comes out of the fort. It is said that this tunnel was built to safely evacuate the people of the royal family in an emergency, but nothing has been discovered so far.
