Walls Tell Stories NCERT Class 5
10. Walls Tell Stories
At last we reached Golconda. We were glad that didi was with us. Didi studies history and we enjoy visiting different places with her.
Shailja: My goodness! This fort is so huge.
Shreedhar: And see at what a height it is built!
Kalyani: Just look! Have you ever seen such a huge gate?
Shailja: It must be very heavy. I wonder how many people would be needed to open and close this gate.
Kalyani: Look at these sharp iron spokes. I wonder why they were made?

Shailja: Oh look! This board has a map of the fort.
Shreedhar: This map shows so many gardens, fields and factories. See, there are many palaces also inside the fort.
Shailja: That means that not only the Sultan, but many other people like farmers and workers must also have been living here.
Kalyani: It must have been a complete tow
