The siege of Golconda is the ultimate chapter in the history of the Qutb Shahi dynasty, where the mighty walls of Golconda prove no match for the tenacity of the Emperor of Hindustan.
The story of the siege begins more than a century before, and well before any of the protagonists were born. The journey to 1687, when the siege happened, begins in 1556 in Panipat – more than a thousand miles away.
This one-hour session takes you through the complexity of the relationship between the Mughals and the sultans of the Deccan, and the long series of events that culminated in the fall of Golconda.
