A complex of 21 domed granite structures, the Qutub Shahi tombs are known to be one of the oldest monuments in Hyderabad. Boasting an amalgamation of Indian and Persian architectural styles, the tombs are marked with intricate colonnades and delicate lime stucco work. The complex also houses several mosques. Nestled amidst serene landscaped gardens, the tombs are renowned for the fact that they are among the few places in the world where an entire dynasty is buried at the same spot. It is said seven of the eight Qutb Shahi rulers rest here. Among the finest tomb is that of Mohammed Quli, the founder of Hyderabad. It stands on a platform near the edge of the complex, with views of the Golconda Fort, which is just 2 km away.
