Bhagamati was a mystic Hindu queen of Muslim sultan Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah. Qutb Shah was the fifth sultan of the erstwhile Qutb Shahi Dynasty who ruled over the Golkonda region of South India in the 16th century.[1][2]

Early life[edit]

Bhagmati was born in Chichlam (around Yakutpura) in a Hindu family.

Death[edit]

Bhagmati died in 1611 CE. No tomb was built over her last remains.[3] In contrast, courtesans Taramati and Premamati lie buried at Qutb Shahi Tombs.[1]
