Hyderabad: The Home Of The Nawabs
Famous for its heat, the city of Hyderabad is colloquially known as the Nawab City. The city life is bursting with colours and life throughout the streets of Charminar and Secundarabad. If you’re feeling adventurous, one up the heat by walking through the many eateries to try spiced meat and vegetables with a spoon full of ghee. However, the main attraction of Hyderabad is the biriyani, noted to be the best in the entire country – sometimes even the sole reason for people to travel all the way to Hyderbaad.
Discover the City of earls
Immerse yourself in history by walking through the streets of Charminar with a tour guide pointing the best places to get pretty glass bangles. Stand in awe of the chandeliers and paintings inside the Salarjaung Museum, after which, bite into a luscious mango bought fresh off the streets of Maradpalli. Reconnect with Mother Nature in the famous Nehru Zoological Park and Botanical Gardens. Experience the majesty of the world’s tallest monolithic Buddha, placed in Hyderabad’s Husain Sagar. And finally, if you want a break from the typical hullabaloo of life, watch a 3D movie on India’s largest screen, in Hyderabad’s Prasad Inox theatre.
