Hyderabad- Blend of Traditions & Modernization

Hyderabad, a vibrant city in the state of Andhra Pradesh boasts to be a correct blend of Culture and Urbanization, of Mughal Cuisine and modern eateries.  A city that has evolved from a city of nizams to cyber city, yet remained grounded, Hyderabad can be soul stirring and colorful to the eyes of tourist.

Hyderabad is famous for a number of reasons, ranging from pearls to haleem, charminar to tech parks to name a few. Major tourist spots include:

The necklace road– One of the most popular boulevard in Hyderabad. The boulevard is complete with restaurants, stalls, recreational activities, and a wonderful view of the city of Hyderabad. Cuisine is also good all around, with the restaurants Eat Street and Water Front leading the charge of popular eating joints.

Monolith of Lord Budha at Hussain Sagar Lake.

Hussain Sagar Lake– One of the largest man made lakes is situated at Hyderabad. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it connects the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. A famous monolith of Lord Buddha is installed at the center of the lake.

Golconda fort– Golconda was the capital of the Qutb Shahi kings. The inner fort has ruins of palaces, mosques, a hill top pavilion rising about 130 meters high from the surroundings and several other public buildings. A nice way to spend your day, reliving the history and thinking back on how olden days were.

Charminar– The Charminar depicts the Indo-Saracenic tradition – a symbiosis of the Hindu and the Muslim traditions, which has woven the magic of a rich Deccani culture. The nightly illumination of Charminar is spectacular. A beautiful mosque is located at the western end of the open roof and the remaining part of the roof served as a court during the Qutb Shahi times. Charminar will remind you of the times when India was untouched by western culture. Crude and pure to its form.
