Hyderabad Travel Guide

Overview

This city of Nizams, Hyderabad is all about ancient monuments, temples, lakes, gardens, cultural heritage, Hyderabadi cuisines and Pearls. Popularly known as Cyberabad today, the city is also one of India’s major IT hubs. With its Mughal connections the city holds magnificent monuments, palaces, tombs and mosques. Be it the iconic Charminar, Begumpet Mosque, Golconda Fort or Falaknuma Palace; the place is worth a visit. Also known as the Pearl City of India, Hyderabad has several exclusive pearl jewelry shops which are government recognized. If you are travelling around November, plan to attend the Deccan Festival of Ghazals and Mushairas. When travelling this zone, do not forget the three must dos of Hyderabad; shop pearls jewelry & stone-studded bangles, eat Hyderabadi biryani and stand at the top of one of the minarets of Charminar.
