Hari and Preethi at the main gate of Golconda fort, which saw it's heyday under the Qutb Shah kings in the 16th and 17th century until it was conquered by the last of the great Moghul emperors, Aurangzeb, in 1687. Aurangzeb, the third son of then-emperor Shah Jehan, had been sent to campaign in the Deccan because his father didn't trust him. This mistrust was well placed, since Aurangzeb imprisoned his father in 1658 when the latter fell ill. Within the year Aurangzeb defeated the armies of his elder brother Dara, who had been the son favored for the throne, and then sent Dara's head to his father in prison. In large part due to the harhness of his rule, the Moghul empire more or less disintegrated after his rule, leaving a power vacuum that the East India Company stepped into.
