Hyderabad: Golconda Fort to remain closed for visitors on January 28, 29

The Golconda Fort will be closed to the public and general visitors on January 28 and 29, due to the visit of G20 delegates to the city.

This is in advance of the G20 Summit Working Group meetings, which will take place from January 28 to June 17.

The delegates are also expected to go to Rani Mahal.

The next G20 Leaders’ Summit at the level of heads of state or governments is scheduled to take place in New Delhi on September 9 and 10, this year.

Before the summit, 215 working group meetings are being held in 56 cities across the country. Six meetings will be held in Hyderabad as part of this. While the first meeting will take place on January 28, working group meetings will take place on March 6, 7, April 26, 27, 28, June 7, 8, 9, July 15, 16, and 17 under the supervision of various ministries.

G20 officials are visiting several locations in the city, while city police ensure their safety and the smooth flow of traffic.

On Friday, the delegates visited the regional passport office and inaugurated the G-20 artifact made of waste materials

The artifact (on the lines of the theme of this year’s Swachhata Pakhwada- Wealth out of Waste) is said to be created entirely of disposable waste material and has been made available in the passport office by officials and support staff.

A four-day workshop was held to prepare immigration and tourism staff for the meetings. The workshop included sessions at Rani Mahal and Golconda Fort for ASI officials, monument guides, Incredible India Tourist Guide (IITGS), and security personnel.

The session, which cited around 80 participants, aimed to teach situation handling, hygiene, personal grooming, etiquette and tourism awareness.
