Charminar, Golkonda and Qutub Shahi Tombs have been forwarded as suggestions for World Heritage sites

Charminar, Golkonda and Qutub Shahi Tombs could soon be recognised as World Heritage sites.

Hyderabad state officials have suggested the monuments to Unesco and are currently in the process of removing all the encroachments surrounding the structures to allow tourists to see the buildings for themselves, IBN reports.

Charminar is already a global icon that many people find synonymous with Hyperabad.

Its four highly ornate minarets have stood high above the banks of the Musi river since it was completed in 1591.

Golkonda fort is situated 11 km to the west of the city and its ruins provide a great insight into the customs of the ancient kingdoms of the Qutub Shahi dynasty.

The tombs of the rulers are located about a kilometre north of the fort.

They represent the most complete and authentic display of the architectural prowess of the dynasty that is still standing today.

Hyderabad founder Muhammed Quli Qutub Shah’s final resting place can be found in the complex.
