About Hyderabad
Hyderabad, the capital of Andhra Pradesh, is often called the North of South India and the South of North India, and the city reflects the vibrant culture of both these Indias! Synonymous with pearls and rightly called the City of Pearls, Hyderabad has a glorious history of over 400 years. Earlier named Bhagyanagar after Bhagmati, the beloved of Quli Qutub Shah, the ruler of Hyderabad, the city was later rechristened as Hyderabad, when Bhagmati became Hyder Mahal after her marriage. The traditional Hyderabadi biryani and the Hyderabadi cuisine is a princely legacy of the Nizams of Hyderabad. When you arrive in early March, the day temperatures could be between 30 and 35 degrees, while the nights should be pleasant. A delightfully elegant disposition, a miracle of technological revolution and a city with quite some tradition - Hyderabad is really a blend of all of these and more.
