    A feast fit for a Nawab

    by vvmanoj Written Jan 3, 2005

    While in Hyderabad, eat out. The cuisine will astonish you with its color, aroma and variety. I would highly recommend places like Madina in the Old City and Paradise in Secunderabad. Stay away from "Hyderabad House" chain of restaurants. They are really bad.
    Oh yes....dont forget the desserts!

    Built in 1913, the building was originally the Hyderabad State Town hall. The architecture is a synthesis of Rajasthani and Persian styles, with an all white, aesthetic look. Located adjoining the picturesque Public Gardens, a massive statue of Mahatma Gandhi in a sitting posture is erected at the entrance park to the Assembly.

    One of the modern monuments of trade and technology, it embodies the newfound attitude of Hyderabad and today finds a place of pride. Situated on the outskirts of the city, it is the nucleus of Cyberabad, the IT destination in these parts of the world

  • There are a lot of places to see in Hyderabad

    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.

    Though originally founded by the Kakatiya in the 13th century, the fort was expanded in the period of the Qutub Shahi kings into a massive fort, known for its diamond trade. The kohinoor diamond, Orloff diamond and the Hope diamonds are believed to have been originated from here. 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. The design of the ventilation reveals the brilliant planning of the architects.

    The ventilation is designed to let in a flow of fresh cool breeze, which is a respite from the heat of summer! One of the most remarkable features of Golconda, is its system of acoustics. The sounds of hands clapped in the grand portico can be heard in the Durbar Hall, at the very top of the hill. The tombs of the Qutub Shahi kings lie about one kilometer north of the outer wall of Golconda.

    These graceful structures are surrounded by landscaped gardens, with beautifully carved stonework. A new attraction at the fort is a Sound and Light that brings the legend of Golconda to life.

    With a spectacular interplay of audio and visual effects, the saga of Golconda unfolds over centuries of splendor. The show livens up the glorious past and it is an experience worth watching.
    The show is presented in English and Telugu on alternate days of the week.
