Run-up of Historic City Treasure Hunt

Join us on a Historic Treasure Hunt of Hyderabad, to uncover some of the city’s hidden treasures! The tour will take you through the Golconda Fort, Qutb Shahi tombs, Naya Qila, and Shilparamam, with a delicious lunch served at the Taramati Baradari.

Places you will see: The modern history of Golconda dates back to the 12th century AD, when the Kakatiya rulers built the first mud fort atop a hill. The fort city was then ruled by the Bahmanis followed by the Qutb Shahi dynasty for seven generations, before their defeat by the Moghuls. Together, the sprawling Golconda fort, Naya Qila, the Qutub Shahi necropolis and the Baradari provide visitors an immersive experience of Qutb Shahi’s times. The day will end at Shilparamam, an art and crafts village that showcases traditional crafts from across India, offering a uniquely Indian shopping experience.

Things you will do: This tour will be unlike any other regular sightseeing trip; the Treasure Hunt will have you forming teams by the draw of ancient coins, reading a unique compilation of articles on the historic city, solving clues and following treasure maps. Each location will present a distinct experience. While Golconda will have you completing stories from the past, Qutb Shahi tombs will have you solving cryptic codes, Naya Qila will have you decoding mirror reflections of words, and Shilparamam will have you following treasure maps! And at Taramati Baradari, you will decipher historic food stories to earn yourself the very same dishes! You’ve heard all about India’s creativity and culture at the conference, now come explore it first hand in the wonderful city of Hyderabad!
