Unlike the other landmarks in Hyderbad, this place was not crowded at all and offers great tranquility to walk around. Try to go during time for sunset when the light cast great shadows through exquisitely detained screen stone panels.

I have been to this place twice. This place is very seclusive and many of us don't visit it. But these are very good and architecturally built tomb's built across large landscape.

Amazing architecture and details in these ancient tombs, as if centuries of mysteries are hidden in the symbols. There are native Hyderabadis who have never been to this place. The only reason I found out about this place and visited it was because of pictures...More

An incredible piece of history is slowly wasting away here as the buildings and tombs have fallen into disrepair due to neglect. Well worth visiting even still.

These are murderously difficult to find, even with LONELY PLANET'S excellent directions. The aristocratic supporters of the Nizams of Hyderabad are buried here, and it's a quiet, nice place with some splendid architecture. It's very near the Owassai Hospital. Even my taxi driver had to...More
