Never miss to see Charminar...
Never miss to see Charminar /Golkonda Fort / 7Tombs /
and there are lot of places to be seen. The city of Pearls. Hyderabad is famous for Pearls and Bangles. There is a street called Laad Bazar, near charminar which is famous for Bangles, it is the biggest bangle bazar in the world. When I am in Hyderabad I feel very great and secure, when I am away from it I feel very lonely and deserted. This is the city which is very caring, the people are very good and helpful.
One more to the list of international chain of restaurants opening in Hyderabad. This international giant opens shop in Hyderabad.
Subway has entered its 38th year of operation. It is the world’s largest submarine sandwich chain with restaurants located in 71 countries. Subway also claims to operate more units in the U.S. and Canada than McDonald’s does. Anyway for an hyderabadi palate anything it okay, be it american, chinese or a roadside stall, absolutely anything. We r very basic you see!!!!! Oh i just had the sandwiches, veg patty, but they were good. U have a choice or small 6' inch or large ones aswell. Meal for 2 persons would be less than 200 Rs., converted it makes about 5$. Call the number below for home delivery.
Golkonda is a ruined city and fortress slightly more than 10 km on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Golkonda Fort is one of the most magnificent fortress complexes in India with massive 10 km long outer wall, complete with many doorways, temples, mosque within the complex.
I have not been climbing much of those forts partly due to bad health condition from pollution of Hyderabad (and few towns before that). But the fort is really amazing and I cannot imagine the glorious days those kingdoms in the past.
The fort open from 9am to 5pm. The Lonely Planet guide book has some printing error.
I LOVE HYDERABAD
"The most happening city in India"
Hyderabad is one of the most rapidly growing cities and is currently the fifth largest city in India. The IT hub in Southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh is easily accessible. Regular flights, frequent trains and the excellent road network make Hyderabad a great travel destination.
"A City In History"
Once home to the richest man in the world, The Nizam, the princely state of Hyderabad is trying hard to retain some of the old charm, manners, etiquettes, and culture that once defined the people here. In this fast changing geographical scenario hyderabadi's are in a race to catch up with the world n fast.
Some moan in quite numbers about the erosion of sublte culture while some go about showing off their language and culture. But an Hyderabadi sure knows how to take it easy. For me well, this is my Paris, NY and my London, I wouldnt trade it for anything in the world.
They are ways of living n enjoyin life, and then there is the Hyderabadi style of living, the way it was meant to be. Its famous and copied all over south asia. The best part in here is that almost all the people u meet here will be Nawabs (prince) or they will act like one or atleast be related in some way to the royal family of yore. Autodrivers, rickshaw pullers, pan shop vendor, watchman, students, officegoers, Govt. employees, doctors, managers.......... oh the list goes on. All of them are Nawabs in their own right. Thats the beauty of it all, that sense of senseless achievement, of being nothing, that arrogance, that feelin that u belong to an era that's so enchanting, so grand, so much powerful, so independent and laidback. The feeling of being a Hyderabadi............
"My city my people...."
Ek tuuti hui zanjeer ki fariyaad hai hum
aur duniyaa ye samajhatii hai ke aazaad hai hum
Kyon hamen log samajhate hai yahaan paradesii
ik muddat se isi shahar me aabaad hai hum
Kahan kaa tark-e-vatan kahan ki hijarat baaba
isi dhartii ki isi desh ki aulaad hai hum
Hum bhi taamiir-e-vatan me.n hai baraabar ke shariik
dar-o-diivaar agar tum ho to buniyaad hai hum
ham ko is daur-e-taraqqii ne diyaa kyaa "Meraj"
kal bhi barbaad the aur aaj bhii barbaad hai hum
