Golconda Fort is a popular tourist destination, and every day there is a footfall of thousands. While this seems to be good news from the tourism point of view, it has become a pain point for the authorities maintaining the Fort and the sanitation workers there. Surely, it is an uphill task to keep the place free of the trash that the tourists leave behind.


Some days back, one saw fire on the western parts of the Fort, and the locals complained to the Fort authorities. The fire could be seen from quite a distance. According to one security guard who was at the site, they had to put up a barrier between the burning grass and trash. No one knows the actual cause of the fire.


But the piles of trash left behind by tourists is a cause of concern for all working at the Fort. There are about 2000 to 3000 people who visit the Fort within a few hours a day. And most of them leave behind plastic bottles, cans, packet wrappers, diapers, sanitary pads, etc., which is a big problem for sanitation workers here. One worker shares that he picks up at least five large bags in a day. And there are about 30 sanitation workers who take turns.


The inner part of Golconda Fort is a wide walled complex sprinkled with palatial ruins, rock formations, deep step wells, bastions, cannon parks, masjids, and a temple. Also, there was a death at Ramdas Bandikhana bastion, which is now closed to the public.


The ASI now plans to install about 50 CCTV cameras to monitor the place. But the uneven and spread-out terrain and rocky landscape are huge hurdles.
