Please join us for an evening to get to know one another and network at an opening dinner at the Executive Housing Mirror Pool on the ISB Hyderabad Campus.
We invite you to visit Taramati Baradari with us for our conference special event. This historic monument was built by Abdullah Qutub Shah VII, Sultan of Golconda Fort, as an ode to his favorite courtesan Taramati. Abdullah Qutub Shah is believed to have enjoyed Taramati’s song and dance from Golconda fort. Her melodious voice would be carried by the breeze, reaching the prince’s ear at the Golconda fort, because of the acoustics model, in the structure as well as that of the Golconda fort. Taramati Baradari pavilion has 12 doorways and was constructed to allow cross ventilation and is one of the most ingenious techniques to have been used at that time. Taramati is said to have seen her heydays as a royal mistress during the reign of Abdullah Qutub Shah and the last King of Golconda, Abul Hasan Tana Shah, roughly from 1626 to 1687. Transportation to the event and back to campus will be provided. Buses will provide transit to and from ISB Hyderabad.
Join us for a farewell reception on the Recreation Centre Lawns on the ISB Campus before departing.
