Qutb Shahi TombsEver since I landed in Hyderabad,one of the place i was very eager to see is this magnificent Qutub Shahi tombs . This place is situated near Golconda fort .We need at least half a day to see this architecture beauty .
The current state of these tombs are in complete disaster . With no proper maintenance , they may fall at any time.
One wonders how this stunning peice of architecuture beauty looked in his hay day .

pisal banda.If you want to go by local train , get down at Yakutpura station and catch a auto to reach this place . It is situated within residential area and 90 % of locals doesn't know about this place . So better see on goggle map before visiting it.
Some people call it as Raymond Obelisk . Raymond's tomb is the tomb of Michel Joachim Marie Raymond,a french general in Nizam's army.He is also the founder of Gun foundry in Hyderabad.This tomb is located on Mussa Ram Bagh .It is believed that this place was named after him. One has to spend a lot of time to find this place and to make it worse the security guard will lock the gate to the entrance to this building for most of time as visitors are seemed to be"once in a blue moon" to this historical place

a) Patancheru Tomb
b) Khairati Begum's tomb
c) Fakhr -ul -mulk tomb
Seeing the condition of all these Tombs , I am just wondering whether the next generation will have a chance to see these architecture wonders in person or not . A big question indeed?
