Qutub Shahi Tombs in Hyderabad

We visited the Qutub Shahi tombs, the tombs of the Dynasty that built the stone Golconda Fort and founded Hyderabad.  

This is the tomb of the Daughter of the 4th King, Wife of the 5th and Mother of the 6th ruler of Golconda and Hyderabad.

The preparation room where the bodies are preserved for burial.

This is the Tomb of the 3rd ruler, who founded Hyderabad.  This sarcophagus is empty, there is an exact duplicate on the story below that contains the body.
