Taramati Baradari on the banks of the River Musi (Muchukunda) is a marvelous structure built in Persian style and is considered to be one of the most excellent buildings by Ibrahim Quli Qutub Shah, the second Sultan of Qutub Shah dynasty.
This Taramati Baradari monument, placed on top of a hill, has a huge music hall with twelve entrances to allow free flow of air for the people comforting in big auditoriums. It is generally associated with romantic tales of the seventh sultan of Golconda, Abdullah Qutub Shah and Taramati, who is believed to have devoted her life to dance and music.
Originally this Baradari, which in Urdu ‘Bara’ means 12 and ‘Dar’ means door structure was a motorcade place for merchants and travelers located in the Ibrahim Bagh, just a kilometer away from Golconda fort. As days flied by, this monument was linked with the romantic stories of the prince falling in love with Taramati who was not from a royal family and who used to sing and dance in this hall.
Kings who loved other than royal family members always remain in history and if that is with any courtesans, they were packed with many stories to cherish the old memories.
Medieval history is full of places and monuments that are that are much talked about for these kinds of passionate episodes that are strong even today and make the visitors curious to know more about it. There are many such stories in the history of Hyderabad too and this Taramati Baradari is also one among them.
One of the attention-grabbing tales associated with this monument is that Prince Abdullah Qutub Shah loved Taramati’s voice so much that he built a palace from where her harmonious voice would easily reach the prince who sat a few kilometers away in Golconda fort, due to its acoustics and carried by the gentle winds.
Historians also related a different exhilarating tale where Taramati, along with her sister Premamati is said to have showcased their dancing skills on tight ropes that were connected from her pavilion all the way to the Golconda fort’s pavilion. Visitors can pay their respects to Taramati who was privileged in the royal cemetery of the Qutub Shahi kings.
