Charminar and Golconda Fort in the old city are those two places where the entire city has a singular view: "It's an Amazing Place To Visit." or "How can you not love the vibe of these places." Both these places have an illustrious history and a strong influence of culture on the city to date.
There have been rumors and stories of the tunnel road between Charminar and Golconda Fort in the past, and some rumors have been revived. The city's well-known heritage photographer Mohammed Habib Ur Rehaman recently visited the Bella Vista Palace Bunker, which is currently the Administrative Staff College of India. Habib rediscovered the details of this old age rumor and put up his amazing photographs of the bunker on the Facebook page Paigahs of the Deccan.
One of his photographs highlighted a board that said Prince Azam Jah Tunnel. Through his observations, the heritage lover Habib guessed that this tunnel would have been built by the royals during the second world war to escape airstrikes. This is actually a bunker, but lots of rumors surround this bunker, and if there is an actual underground pathway connecting these structures.
Tunnels were a common existence during the time of Quli Qutub Shah and even during the last nizams in the 20th century. However, after multiple surveys and checks in these two locations, there are tunnel works in place but not a completed one, nor is there clarity about an existing connection through tunnels apart from those who believed to have used it back in the day.
