This 500-year-old city offers seductive history, fiery food, wallet-friendly jewelry and a dynamic high-tech scene.

A city of mosques, Hyderabad

Hyderabad was once the capital of a filthy-rich princely state.

After India’s independence, the palaces and pleasure gardens were sold off, built over and looted, and you had to be really sharp to see the city’s beauty. But several palaces in Hyderabad’s Old City have recently been refurbished, including Falaknuma Palace, a seven-star hotel that was skilfully restored by the Taj Group and is now an exceedingly plush time capsule. Other monuments and buildings are being fixed up, but the city, and many of its architectural gems, are still off the radar – which keeps the masses at bay. Elegant and blossoming, but also weathered and undiscovered, Hyderabad’s Old City is ripe for exploration.

The city has become an IT hub as large number of software firms, call centers and BPOs have been set up here in the recent times. Various renowned pharmaceutical companies such as Aurobindo Pharma Limited, Divis Labs, Dr Reddy's Laboratories etc. have also been established here which makes the city more important. Apart from the economical and industrial values, the city also has many historical monuments and one among them is the Char Minar. All these important places and attractions have made the city popular and this attracts large number of tourists and IT professionals towards it. The city of Hyderabad has well developed bus routes which connects it with all the major cities and towns of the state. Bus to Hyderabad is available from all such cities as well.
