#GES2017: Ivanka Trump visits Golconda Fort – See pictures

Hyderabad: Ivanka Trump, daughter and advisor of US President Donald Trump, who arrived here on Tuesday to attend the GES, visits the historic Golconda Fort on Wednesday.

After visiting a session on Wednesday morning at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES), she left for the fort, about 15 km from the Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC), the venue of the summit.

She was earlier expected to visit the Charminar, a globally recognised monument and symbol of Hyderabad located in the old city.

She was also likely to shop at nearby Laad Bazar, famous for bangles and semi-precious stones.

The plans, however, were dropped on security grounds as Charminar is located in densely populated area, notorious for congestion and traffic jams.

The Telangana government is also hosting a dinner for the GES guests at the Golconda Fort on Wednesday. However, she will not attend that dinner as she would be flying back on Wednesday evening.

Since all the security arrangements were already in place at the fort for the dinner, the security agencies cleared the proposal for a sightseeing tour of the fort.

The Golconda Fort on the fringes of the city was the capital of the Qutub Shahi kingdom from 1518 to 1687.
