The, Charminar stands within the four arches of the Charkaman. It is said that Sultan Quli knelt at a crossroads and prayed to the gods when a terrible pestilence swept his kingdom. After it subsided he decide to build a structure at the very spot as thanksgiving to the gods. The structure built in 1591 was the Charminar. Often referred to as the 'Arc of the Triumph' of the East, the Charminar comprises four graceful minarets with its central structure soaring to a height of 180 feet. Centuries old bazaars surrounding the monument throb with the hectic trading of pearls, lac bangles and other accessories fit for a bride.

"Golconda Fort"

Constructed by the Kakatiya kings in the year 1140, Golconda was expanded by the Qutub Shahi kings into a massive fort of granite with walls and ramparts extending to a length of 5km in circumference. From this fort they ruled the nearby areas even when their capital was based in Warangal. This massive fort is 11 km in perimeter and its walls are 15 to 18 ft high. The whole fort is built in granite and is flanked by 70 ramparts and 8 huge gates. Previously the whole fort was surrounded by a deep gorge but slowly this was filled up. While entering from the main gate of the fort, if one claps below the Grand Portico, echoes are heard in a Darbar hall some 128 meters away.

The fortress city within the walls was famous for the diamond trade and is said to been the origin of the famous Koh-i-noor diamond. The historic fort lies 11kms west of the city of Hyderabad. The name originates from the Telugu words "Golla" meaning Shepard and "Konda" or hill - The 'shepherd's hill'. The fort was later taken over by the Bahamani kings, subsequently passing into the hands of the Qutub Shahis, who held it from 1512 to 1687 AD. The first three Qutub Shahi kings rebuilt Golconda over a span of 62 years.

Famous features of Golconda include it's system of acoustics, palaces, factories, the water supply system. The famous Rahban cannon was used during the last seize of Golconda by Aurangazeb to whom the fort ultimately fell.

Hyderabad - Event Management firms ?

by Avijayan

Any of fellow Hyd VT'ers know of any event management company or any company which can handle light/sound/stage for an event at a 5 star hotel, pls suggest or pass around to friends who might know of people.

I am in Hyd nov 10 to 12, would like to meet anyone whose interested in this business area.

Evenings of nov 10 & 11 I am relatively free, so if we can have a meet of VT'ers Hyd or anyone wants to meet up, we can do that as well. I am likely staying at the Taj Banjara, if rooms are available or somewhere around there.

Travel Tips for Hyderabad

Dont miss this place if you have kids!

by vpas about Seregatti

This place is a mock jungle with fake animals that even make noises sometimes!Children will just love the ambience.Waiters are dressed as hunters and the whole experience is great.The food is good too,but the portions are small compared to what you would usually get in India. The starters are great.by and large all their items are good.

There are a lot of places to see in Hyderabad

by lubna-s

There are a lot of places to see in Hyderabad like Golconda Fort, Qutb Shahi Tombs, Falaknuma Palace, Chowmahalla Palace, Purani Haveli, Salarjung Museum, Charminar, Mecca Masjid, Lad Bazaar, Ramoji Filmcity, Buddha Poornima, Necklace Road.
You will also get to see the modern side of it in Hi-Tech City...home for all the computer giants like Microsoft, Apple....and a host of other places. Also in Hi-Tech City there is a place called Shilparamam, where a lot of fairs and cultural events are organised on and off.
Besides there is a lot of theatre activity going on too. Have a nice look at the Salarjung Museum where the Nizam Jewellery Exhibition is put up. Exquisite Collection!!!
Lad Bazaar is the main market in Charminar where various bangles in Glass and Shellac can be seen in all their glory. These bangles form a must wear in any Hyderabadi wedding which is incomplete without this work of art.
One will also run into various clothes stores offering ethnic Zardozi work, Zari and silk embroidery which is a treat for the eyes especially the kind of detail every outfit is stitched with~they are very popular at weddings.
You will find innumerable Pearl and Gold Jewellery shops in Charminar which offer a wide range of ethnic and chic designs keeping with the current trends.

Hyderabad - a town of smiling faces

by Amadej

"It all comes down to the mystery of the relationship between the mind and the cosmos.... Is it not in fact a very naive conception of reality, and of its accessibility to human understanding, that would exclude so much of what human beings have always found meaningful, as if by this means fallibility or error or delusion could be localized and rejected." Merlynne Robinson, From: 'The Death of Adam', Houghton Mifflin Co., XX century

Hyderabad is a capital of Indian state Andhra Pradesh, fifth town in size in India. Four to five millions people live here. Not long time ago there were two towns close together, the second one was named Sekundarabad. But population in India is growing fast and both town seamlessly merged together recently. You do not notice when you leave one and enter another. Hyderabad is the birth place of the biggest diamond ever – Koh-i-Noor (which, by accident, went astray and ended in English crone) – and a true jewelry place. The town is not one of the utmost important business or tourist places in India, however it is a big university and science center of India. You will not see many tourists there, compared to the crowds everywhere, they are nearly nonexistent. It seems like western culture, which is today changing spiritual foundation of India faster than Islam, which arrived centuries ago, or English colonial past, hasn't yet arrived to Hyderabad. The town, at least the old part, still gives an impression of the old India and is thus completely different from, let say, Mumbai (Bombay) which hums from business and enterprising spirit. Here the time flows still in circles. Our linear style development, with its future in a fog, is still not prevailing. In the town's picturesque bazaar you can still find street merchants sitting on the floor in the midst of dust and dirt, who sell true jewels.

More information is in the Travelogues.
