Hyderabad, a vibrant city with the imposing Charminar at its heart, is a mixture of history, cuisine and eclectic experiences. While its Old City area is an impressive heritage haven with iconic monuments ting its narrow lanes, its contemporary counterpart matches pace with its cosmopolitan population. The four-sided archway of Charminar, overlooking a bustling bazaar, is the centrepiece of the city around which the township developed. Located on the banks of the Musi River on the Deccan Plateau, Hyderabad reels you in with its heritage charm, accentuated by a vibrant culinary culture, much of which owes its curation to the erstwhile Nizam rulers. Explore this historical city and know more about the city.
