Taramati Baradari

Taramati Baradari is located at Ibrahimbagh on Gandipet Road in Hyderabad. It is one of the popular monuments of the city. During the reign of Ibrahim Quli Qutub Shah, the fourth Sultan of Golconda, was built on the banks of the Musi river in Persian style garden.

There are stories which link romantic tales of the then Sultan with Taramati, a courtesan. One such was during the reign of Abdullah Qutb Shah,  who used to hear Taramati’s voice as she sang for the travellers at the serai, while he sat at Golconda Fort which is two kilometers away. Another story is of the two dancing sisters, Taramati and Premamati, who danced on tied ropes between their dome and the balcony of the king Abdulla Qutub Shah. Both the sisters were buried in the royal cemetery of the Qutub Shahi kings as a tribute.

Taramati is said to have named the sarai Taramati Baradari by Abdullah Qutb Shah

Taramati Baradari has 12 entrances to a music hall, was used as an auditorium. The hall is very spacious which has been situated on the top of the hill. This place is now used for performances on classical music and other folk art forms because of its association with Taramati with great acoustics.

One cannot miss out any concert at this beautiful place.
