HYDERABAD: Commemorating the birth anniversary of the founder of the city Mohammed Quli Qutb Shah, history enthusiasts gathered at Dar ul Shifa, which is claimed to be the first hospital in Asia, to understand the architecture of the bygone era.   

The event, which included a candle light march and a walk around the former hospital premises was organised by a group called History Buffs in the city and the Indian National Trust for Art, Culture and Heritage (INTACH).

Bringing into light the current state of the city, organisers pointed out that though the Shah was born in Golconda and had no qualified engineers to back him up, he built a beautiful city. “We want to remind the people how we have transformed our city with our unplanned infrastructural decisions by killing many of our monuments,” said Anuradha Reddy from INTACH.

On the other hand, Mohd Safiullah from Deccan Heritage Trust said that the government should more actively participate in reviving and safeguarding monuments. “The Telangana government needs to bring the history of Kakatiyas, Qutb Shahis and Asif Jahis into the syllabus,” he said.
