Hyderabad high court

1. Hyderabad's historical monuments such as Charminar and the Golconda Fort will charm you with its fascinating stories and legends

  • Hyderabad houses some of the most famous historical sites including Salar Jung Museum (among the world's largest private collection museum) as well as art galleries, libraries, and theatres. Legend has it that Charminar was built to honour a promise Quli Qutb Shah, the person under whose rule it was constructed, made to Allah to mark the end of the plague in the city of Hyderabad.

2. Famously known as The City of Pearls, Hyderabad was ranked as Third Best City to Travel by Lonely Planet

  • Hyderabad was once the capital of a filthy-rich princely state. After India’s independence, the palaces and pleasure gardens were sold off, built over and looted, and you had to be really sharp to see the city’s beauty. But several palaces in Hyderabad’s Old City have recently been refurbished, including Falaknuma Palace, a seven-star hotel that was skilfully restored by the Taj Group and is now an exceedingly plush time capsule. Other monuments and buildings are being fixed up, but the city, and many of its architectural gems, are still off the radar – which keeps the masses at bay. Elegant and blossoming, but also weathered and undiscovered, Hyderabad’s Old City is ripe for exploration.

3. Blossoming yet undiscovered, Hyderabad's Old City is every traveller's delight with traditional and historical bazaars still thriving

  • When it comes to shopping, Hyderabad is nothing sort of a paradise. From antiques to beautiful rich dresses to rare semi precious gems and handicrafts, the city, due to its pleasant weather, is ideal for travellers to indulge in souvenir shopping.

4. Hyderabadi cuisine that is a blend of Mughlai and Persian food is an adventure on its own. A testimony of its opulent past, its mouth-watering food is known to be rich and aromatic.

  • One of the main highlights of the Hyderabad tourism is the Hyderabadi food which uses fresh fruits instead of dried fruits. The Hyderabadi Biryani, one of India's most popular foods, is made of flavoured rice with meat or vegetables and an important part of Hyderabadi cuisine.

5. Hyderabad is home to some of the most exotic flora and fauna in India

  • Located 50 km northwest of Hyderabad, there is a sanctuary called Manjira Wildlife Sanctuary. Originally a crocodile sanctuary, today more than 70 species of birds are spotted here and is home for the vulnerable species mugger crocodile. The reservoir, located in the sanctuary, provides drinking water to Hyderabad and Secundarabad.

6. You can find some of the most beautiful man-made lakes in the world here. One of its 140 lakes is the magnificent Hussain Sagar with a large monolithic statue of Gautama Buddha peacefully watching over the city.

  • There are over 140 man-made lakes in Hyderabad. Located in the heart of the city, Hussain Sagar is a beautiful and placid lake. It constitutes a continuum between history and the modern times.
