About Hyderabad
Hyderabad is the capital city of the state of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh of South India.
Located on the Deccan Plateau, Hyderabad is the fifth largest city of India. The 400 year old
city is located on the banks of the River Musi.

Hyderabad was founded by Muhammad Quli Qutab Shah, the fifth sovereign of the Qutab
Shahi dynasty, in the year 1591. Initially, Golconda was the capital of the Qutab Shahi dynasty,
who ruled over Deccan during the period 1512 – 1687.

The name Hyderabad literally means ‘city of Hyder’ since it was named after Queen Hyder
Mahal, wife of King Qutab Shah. With the help of Iranian architects, Hyderabad was erected in a
grid format. The city was modeled on the city of Isfahan of Iran. With the construction of
Hyderabad city, it became the capital city of Qutb Shahi rulers.

The cultural facet of Hyderabad is distinctly different from the Telugu culture of the rest of
Andhra Pradesh. Hyderabad has a rich Hyderabadi culture of its own, a blend of Persian and
Telugu cultures, which flourished under the reign of the Qutab Shahis.

Hyderabad is also known as the ‘City of Nizams’ since it was ruled for a long time by the
Nizams. The Nizams of Hyderabad were famous as the wealthiest royals in the history of India.

Today, Hyderabad is one of the leading centres of information technology. The emerging
Biotech and IT industries have given the city a global platform. The thriving tourism and IT
industries have brought Marriott, Novotel and Taj, the giants in the hospitality industry, to this
metropolis.

Tourists who visit Hyderabad can witness the blend of ancestral heritage and modern
technology. The deep rooted cultural history of Hyderabad is evident from its monuments,
mosques, temples, varied art forms and crafts. The monuments, minarets and mosques of
Hyderabad with its impressive architectural style attract visitors.

Charminar, Jama Masjid, Golconda Fort, Salarjung Museum, Osmania University, Paigah
Tombs, Qutub Shahi Tombs, Raymond Tomb, Birla Mandir, Hussain Sagar, Ramoji Film City,
etc. are some of the popular attractions of the city of Hyderabad.

Hyderabad also celebrates the Deccan Festival is organised by the Department of Tourism,
Andhra Pradesh, every year on 25th February. This five-day long festival reflects the culture
and highlights Hyderabad's arts, crafts, culture and the famous Nawabi cuisine.

The pulsating nightlife of Hyderabad is also a major tourist attraction. The bylanes of the
Charminar and the authentic Hyderabadi and Andhra cuisine has made Hyderabad a haven for
shopaholics and foodies. The best time to visit Hyderabad is October to March.

Page 2/14
Hyderabad can be reached from destinations around the country by air, rail and road. There are
two International Airports in Hyderabad, Hyderabad International Airport; Rajiv Gandhi
International Terminal and a domestic terminal; N T Rama Rao Domestic Terminal, connected
with almost all major cities of India and the world.

Secunderabad and Nampalli Railway stations are well connected to all major cities.

The city is also well connected by buses run by the state government and other private
operators to regions within the state as well as neighbouring states.

Featured review about Hyderabad


Awesome City-Hyderabad
"A city of great beauty, taste( the culinary tragedy) and opportunities, that has high regard to the
financial deficit we all are in now and then, undermined by people's lack of civic sense and their
volatile nature. People fall out and could beat each other out of sheer folly. All of this I hope to
delineate as I go further. I may be critical but will not overlook the fact that this is still a wonderful
city that has an environment of growth.

The City: This city is fancy, often even tacky. Has some great places to visit and to live, if you
can overlook some of the irksome matters, but then its human nature. I like this city better than
Delhi and Bangalore.

The Language: I'd be crude to mention the local argot to be appalling( Downright molten
English, Hindi and I'm guessing Telugu), so I will not. Pardon my satire." - Rajat Gajul,
Solapur, 3 weeks ago
Awesome experience of Hyderabad
"In 2014 on December 8th we went for 6 days trip to the Hyderabad. It was really awesome
experience. In Hyderabad we visited the Salarjung museum, which is so big and we were
unable to attend all rooms of museum because of small amount of time. Next day we visited the
famous Ramoji film city, which was situated somewhere outside of Hyderabad. It was also
wonderful day. There was so many gardens, statues and also various shows, such as stunt
show was there for entertaining audience. Next day we visited the ice world, in which the small

Page 3/14
place was there which is fully covered with ice, and feels like Kashmir. We had done too much
fun at there. The overall experience was awesome of the tour. We tried special Hyderabadi
biryani, rumali roti and various meals. There was also go carting cars at ground floor of ice
world. Also the museum of K Sudhakar of various types of cars was awesome experience,
there were so many cars are made by using various things such as cup, boot, camera etc.
Overall it was amazing tour, we enjoy lot, the people of Hyderabad are also helpful but the traffic
police are corrupted, they will not let you go if your vehicle is outside of Hyderabad until you give
them some money." - Shashank Kubal, Pune, 3 weeks ago
Satisfactory experience
"Finally it is the great experience with me when I choose this journey from the bus and from the
place every thing is good and I feel good time and definitely I will visit the same with the same
thank you holidayiq for giving me best chance and every thing hotel and all good." - Khadar
Shaik, Bangalore, 3 weeks ago

Charminar Ramoji Film city." - Rupee Rupesh, Nellore, 3 weeks ago
Perfect place for people fond of food and travelling
"Travellers should visit the destination for a must because its a must to have place on your Top
100 places to visit before you die. Hyderabad has national heritage, modern based engineered
architectures, king-sized malls, unmatched Delicious Biryani, zoos, parks and a many more
things.

Some places to must visit here are:

1)Golconda Fort
2)Charminar
3)Bawarchi(Restaurant famous for its biryani)
4)Nehru Zoological Park
5)Hussain Sagar Lake
6)Lumbini Park
7)NTR Garden
8)Inorbit Mall

Starting with Golconda Fort, it's a place which is of National Heritage for our country. The most
different things I found here is to visit such a great heritage and Fort, the entry fee here is only 5
rupees(only for Indians, without cameras). And apart from that, if you look for a guide who will
explain you some good to hear stories about the fort with no truth in it, then it will cost 600-800

Page 4/14
rupees(price varies on number of people for each guide). So coming to Golconda Fort, its an
example of beauty as well as great civil engineering. Yes, you heard it right, the kind of natural
technology and engineering implemented here is almost for today's civil engineers to even think
of. One echo system for alert sound is being implemented here. One sound for echo is setup at
the entrance. Another sound of it is being implemented at King's room which is about 500 feet
above the entrance. The reason for echo sound is for alert whenever any enemy will come,
then King will be alerted and he will escape from the Fort through a secret way which will take
him out to Charminar, about 20 kms away from Golconda. This is one of the engineering
implementation at Golconda. Apart from it, a numerous designs are done like natural AC,
cooling water from dry sand, both dargah and temple at a place.

One more place which everybody will love to go is Hussain Sagar Lake. Its near park called
Lumbini, which is a nice place to hangout for children's and adults also.

In the middle of lake there is small port where the Hussain Statue is present. To go to the statue
at the port, small boats are there which costs you about 50 rupees for that. Apart from that, if
you just want to have a thrill adventure in lake then even speed boat and jetski is there for your
ride. And yes, for jetski obviously some rules and requirements are there like license. So most
of the people don't get often the luxury to go through jetski. And if you have want to have a
luxurious experience at lake, then cruise is also there which takes about 1. 5 hours to complete
the trip. Also for adventure, at Lumbini park, some sort of Bungee Jumping is there which is a
great fun for thrill liking people.

NearBy Lumbini Park, there is a place called Birla Mandir which is another great place to go
once. The whole temple is made of pure white marble and gives a feeling of peace to go there.

Now coming to Local Foods and Shopping, nothing is better than a full plate Biryani at
BAWARCHI, travelling to Hyderabad is incomplete without this place. It also contains some
great collection of North Indian Foods like Chole Bhature, Chat, Thali but famous only for
Biryani. Some other places famous for their Biryanis are Paradise, Hyderabad House. And if
you are a lover of pastries and Bakery Biscuits then go to India's no. 1 store Karachi Bakery.
For shopping, when sale season comes then malls like GVk, Inorbit are well and good. But if
you want to have non-branded, local market shopping then go to Sindh Colony.

Coming to Inorbit mall, it can be said as one of the most modern and well engineered place and
a great place to come with family and enjoy. Consists of everything from top to bottom. Branded
showrooms, foodCourt, PVR Cinemas, Multi Cuisine Open Air Restaurant, Play House(a great
place to spend time), ATMS etc.

And for software engineers, its a mecca. I am not taking it to any career perspective or
something but really place like MindSpace is one of its own. The whole hi-tech city is built by
cutting a mountain and making it into an ecospace for technology and Nature.

The kind of activities which kept me busy were the Great National Heritage of our country,

Page 5/14
seeking fun and adventure, experimenting the great food speciality of the city and interaction
with the people out there. I stayed there for 2 months and despite being not a South Indian I
never faced any language or communication problem. The local people there are having a most
welcoming nature and cared for us like their own family member.

My advice to travellers will be look for Cabs while travelling as Metros are recently started and
not properly routed yet. Local trains can be a good option or you can use local city buses if you
are comfortable enough. If you have limited money budget for travelling then please be aware
of shopping at Malls as it may be a great money spender for you.

Have a nice trip to all the readers and enjoy the place to the fullest." - Saurabh Joshi,
