...and we're back in Hyderabad.
The Qutub Shahi Tombs are one of the must see sights to be found within Hyderabad. Although they have fallen into disrepair, they are now sufficiently guarded by the state against further vandalism and are still quite the site to see. I will always remember them for being my halfway marker seen on the horizon when I was coming out of Jubilee Hills on the way to Gachibowli.
Srikanth took Jim and I to the tombs and we were impressed. But then again, we are always impressed by big old things.
This was, in my opinion, the grandest tomb of them all. I forget exactly which it was. I think it may have been the one erected in memorium for Hayath Bakshi Begum daughter of Muhammed Quli Qutub Shah...but I could be wrong.
The guys at left were making fun of me while I was taking the photo. Every time locals would make fun of me for taking a photo I would start laughing and then pretty soon we were all laughing. I guess I just find that picking on me is funny too!
I would have really liked to have a camera with bellows to correct the convergance on this picture. I guess that would have made me even more worthy of being heckled!
That little orange man near the entryway into the tomb is Srikanth. Hi Srikanth!
