Located at Ibrahimbagh on Gandipet Road and just outside the Golconda Fort, Taramati Baradari is one of the popular monuments of Hyderabad. Taramati Baradari is consisted of a music hall with 12 entrances. It was used an an auditorium. Taramati has been situated on the top of the hill, which was done so as to avoid any disturbance to the sound from the population of the surrounding area. Its hall is spacious. This huge structure is in the shape of semi-arch; it opens into an art gallery.
Taramati Gana Mandir and the Premathi Nritya Mandir are the places where both legendary sisters Taramathi and Premamathi have resided. Both the sisters used to perform at two separate pavilions which are circular dais atop a two-storied structure. Both the baradaris are located at a distance of few kilometres from each other.
These monuments have legend behind them. According to tales, Taramati and Premamati, the two dancers and courtesans of the Abdullah Qutub Shah who was the 7th Sultan of Golconda, used to often perform dances on a rope that was tied between Sultan’s balcony and their place. However, similar to his Grandfather, the founder of Hyderabad, who had courtesan Bhagmati as his favourite; Taramati was the favourite dancer of Abdullah Qutub Shah. This is the reason why he created Taramati Baradari with astonishingly fine acoustics so that her voice would reach him at the Golconda Fort, which is lesser than 3 km. The acoustics of Taramati Baradari is of such high standards that it is often compared to the one in Bala Hisar of Afghanistan.
This place has great acoustics and because of its association with Taramati, who had dedicated her entire life to dance and music, it is now used for performances on classical music and other folk art forms.
