Did You Know Taramati Baradari Is A 141-Year-Old Monument Turned Hotel?

    What Makes It Awesome

    Call it a tale or a fable, there are plenty of stories that revolve around Taramati Baradari — a caravan station inside Ibrahim Bagh, a Persian-style garden. Turned into a hotel by the government, you can feel like royalty here. 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 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.
