Incessant rain over the past week in Hyderabad caused immense damage to the 500-year-old Golconda Fort
Incessant rain over the past week in Hyderabad caused immense damage to the 500-year-old Golconda Fort. Days after a portion of one of the miradors of a rampart of Naya Qila collapsed, a portion of the wall near Sri Jagadamba temple located inside the historic Golconda Fort has fallen owing to the torrential rains which pounded Hyderabad till two days ago. The nearly 20-foot tall wall is on the way to the highest point of the fort.
10 months ago the Archaeological department had carried out repair works on some portions of the Golconda Fort which was the seat of Qutub Shahi dynasty.
Locals alleged that the officials concerned did not take note of the cracks which appeared on the fallen wall.
