The Qutb Shahi Monuments of Hyderabad
The Qutb Shahi Monuments of Hyderabad is part of the Tentative list of India in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
Golconda Fort, Qutb Shahi Tombs and Charminar are the landmarks of the former capitals Golconda and Hyderabad of the Qutb Shahi Sultanate (1518 - 1687). Because of the vicinity of diamond mines, Golconda flourished as a trade centre of large diamonds. The three serial sites are also part of the TWHS Monuments and Forts of the Deccan Sultanate.
