Neglect and garbage turning ASI-protected 460-year Katora Houz at Golconda Fort into a cesspool

The 460-year-old Katora Houz, a heritage site at Golconda, Hyderabad, built by the Qutub Shahi rulers, is being neglected and turned into a landfill, flouting its heritage status. The man-made lake, once a source of freshwater storage, is now filled with garbage from nearby residential areas, emitting a foul smell. Despite being protected by the Archeological Survey of India, little is being done to preserve it.

Katora Houz was part of a water conservation project initiated by the Quli Qutab Shah dynasty, which also constructed other lakes like Shatam Talab and Langar Houz. However, these water bodies are now in a morbid state.

The focus has only been on the physical structures and landscape, not the engineering geniuses of the water management system.
