The Hyderabad of today is a hi-tech and modern city riding on the IT boom, with young technology professionals across the country making it their home. However, this centre of the erstwhile princely state of Hyderabad, the city still maintains the old world charm of the place in terms of the historical monuments and the architecture, the language and culture, the cuisine esp. the famous “Hyderabadi Biryani” among many other attractions that we have listed below.
CHARMINAR: The famous monument represents Hyderabad and vice versa. This 56 ft four column monument is located in the Old Hyderabad amidst the crowded markets that gets a festive fervour during Eid with all the shops selling delicacies such as haleem and biryani come alive. This old part of town and the monument itself is perfect for any traveler with a camera to indulge in some amazing street photography, immersing oneself in the stories and eating the delicious fare Hyderabad offers.
GOLCONDA FORT: The fort is located quite close to Hyderabad and hence can be reached quite easily from there. Qutb Shah built this 120-meter high fort in 16th-century. The fort was built keeping in mind the acoustics of the place and therefore it is really interesting know how the fort was built and the stories behind it. It is recommended to spend at least half a day or more here as there is so much to explore and experience here.
RAMOJI FILM CITY: To those who think that Mumbai and Bollywood represent the Indian film industry, they should come and visit Ramoji Film City. Telegu film industry is as popular and prolific as the Hindi film industry. In fact, many Bollywood movies are shot here as well. Spread over 2500 acres of land with multiple amusement parks, world-class restaurants, live movie shoots and several other rides offers an amazing experience to the visitor. One day may not be enough to explore this and you might stay the night here at one of the many resorts and hotels in the premises.
HUSSAIN SAGAR LAKE: It is one of the most beautiful places in the city. In fact, it is the largest artificial lake in whole of Asia. Built in 1562 AD by the ruler Ibrahim Quli Qutb Shah, the lake was primarily used for irrigation till 1930. With a huge statue of Gautam Buddha at the centre of the lake, the place is breathtaking throughout the day and especially at night when it is all lit up. Highly recommended to spend sometime there.
SALAR JUNG MUSEUM: A world famous museum, third-largest in India houses the huge collection of Mir Yousuf Ali Khan, who was commonly known as Salar Jung II. Not only Indian or Asian artifacts, but the museum has some of the most significant artwork from all around Europe. The museum is a real treat not only for the history buffs but also for others who will find many interesting items such as the veiled Rebecca statue out there. It is world-famous for its intricacy all around the world and the 19th-century musical clock out there that was constructed by Cooke and Kelvey of England.
Warangal is a perfect mix of beauty and history with many temples and forts, such as a 12th century old Thousand Pillar Temple, which is endowed in Kakatiya style of architecture. However, the city’s top visited place is the Warangal Fort. It is a 13th-century old ruin, which is surrounded by ancient history and marvelous sculptures. However, the most beautiful part is the Pakhal Lake. Located amidst beautiful forests it offers stunning and breathtaking views all through. The Pakhal Wildlife Sanctuary where it is located is another attraction of Warangal.
