Punjagutta Pahad

Whilst this is a common sight across the city, with a small flag as well as an object of worship sometimes on top of rocks or on the roadside, this one is special – in that it hails from the time of the Qutb Shahi era and is now surrounded by multi storeyed apartments which seem to diminish its importance. However, this hillock is pretty much the reason why the busy Punjagutta got its name.

It is virtually unknown except to a few, opens only on Fridays and one has to get past narrow steep lanes to get to the point. From there the view is a treat as is the gentle breeze.

The flag reads “Yaa Ali Madad”.
