Culture Vultures, Check Into This 140-Year-Old Monument Turned Hotel At INR 2,100 Per Night
What Makes It Awesome
Taramati Baradari is said to be built during the reign of Quli Qutb Shah who named it after a courtesan — Taramati. This caravan station has 12 doorways and it is a sight to behold after sunset as it is lit up. As of today, it is a popular venue for wedding venues and photoshoots, this monument is on top of a hill and offers a brilliant view of the city. Surrounded by royal gardens, this is a proper resort maintained by Telangana government.
There are two types of rooms — a suite and a standard room. Both the rooms give you an access to the entire resort and you can go on a cultural exploration. Find carvings on the walls and Instagram some sculptures after you dig into a meal at Haritha restaurant. Plus, it has a pool. Another good thing is that it's located just 4km from Golconda Fort, so if you're not up for an overnight stay, get here during the sunset hour.
What Could Be Better
The rooms are a bit basic, and we really hoped there would be a regal touch to this kind of heritage hotel.
