Chand Minar is a great example of Turk style architecture. This minar was built by Ala-ud-din Bahmani in 1435 after conquering the fort. The minaret is distinctly different. Its style of architecture is divided into four separate storeys, each featuring 24 small chambers along with a mosque. The mosque is at the base of the minaret which is built of blue tiles exported from Persia. The minar with its ornamented gigantic gates also houses the ChiniMahal where the last King of Golconda was imprisoned for over 13 years. The palace also holds the tomb of the king. The tunnel inside the fort along with the cannons within the palace makes it a remarkable destination for cultural enthusiasts.
