Fateh Maidaan

Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium at Hyderabad is also known as 'Fateh Maidaan'. Fateh in urdu means - victory and Maidaan means - a ground.

The name Fateh Maidaan came into being when Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb conquered the Golconda Fort. It was this place where the Mughal army laid the siege, leading to the fall of Golconda.

Since, camping at this place brought victory to the Mughals, it came to be called "Fateh Maidaan" then onwards.
