    The QutubShahi structure called Mushk Mahal in Attapur, Hyderabad is at risk of disappearing if no action is taken soon. The land surrounding the structure has been encroached upon and illegal constructions have been built, causing the structure to turn black in color. Additionally, the empty land around the 300-year-old heritage structure is overgrown with bushes. Some parts of the building are damaged and it could collapse at any time.

    Historians have noted that the site was originally called Mishk Mahal before its current name of Mushk Mahal. The two-story building is situated on six acres of land, with 50 percent of the vacant land being encroached upon.

    The structure, built in 1678 in the Qutub Shahi architectural style, is the only remaining Qutub Shahi palace apart from famous monuments like Golconda Fort, Qutub Shahi Tombs, and Charminar.

    Heritage activist Mohammed Haseeb Ahmed emphasizes the importance of preserving Mushk Mahal as it is a significant Qutub Shahi palace and the only one left from that era. Restoring the palace will not only preserve history and architecture for future generations but also boost tourism in Telangana.
