Everytime I visited Golkonda Fort, somebody would mention about the light and sound show that takes place in the evening. We have always been there around noon and we came out in broad daylight. But the way people used to talk about the show made me feel like, having a view of Hyderabad from the top view point is nothing in comparison to the Captivating light and sound show that happens in the evening.
People around me have a habit of exaggerating things even when there’s no benefit for them. I put my trust in them and went for the show. Please don’t judge the quality of those photos, the show was even more disappointing.
So here’s how it went. We bought our tickets and made our way to the seats. At night time, they don’t have that much of light in every place (the way you have go to reach the seats), it was dark and there was weird suffocating smell. Bats were hanging from ceiling and occasionally flapping their wings to add more spice to that. Just before the place to seat, a guy gave some mosquito repellent ointment ( great job!).
There was no lights where we sat. Lights were set in different places of the fort, inspite of all those colourful lights it was pretty much dark. I don’t know if it was just that day or not, it was hot and suffocating. But we were determined to stay till the end, after all we had paid to suffer!
The show was about the historical background of the fort, which could be googled up at any time. It was quite a different experience indeed.
