Badshahi Ashurkhana - Review
The Badshahi Ashurkhana is the mourning place for Shia Muslims built in the memory of martyr Imam Hussain. The attraction is a heritage site and dates back to 1594, built by Muhammed Quli Qutb Shah.
The place has a dedicated area for offerings (Niyaz Khana), resting (Sarai Khana), drinking water (Naqaar Khana), serving food (Langar Khana) and also incudes the residence and office of the Mujawer. What truly makes this place special is the gorgeous tile work that brightens up the whole place and has stood the test of time after 400 years! The 72 Alams seen here represent the 72 people who died with Imam Hussain. Come here to admire the beautiful tile work and click some fabulous photos for your memoir.

Badshahi Ashurkhana, Hyderabad Reviews
Said to have been built just 3 years post Charminar, this is said to be one of the earliest structures in Hyderabad. It is being run by the 11th (or perhaps 12th) generation of the Persian family. Unfortunately the marble slab which is supposed to mention the information and details about the Ashoorkhana has got faded away (pics uploaded). I had gone to this place at ~7:30pm due to which I wasn't allowed to enter inside and hence missed out seeing the intricate mirror work of the main structure. Though it is a very old structure, somehow people don't seem to flock around to visit this religious place. It is situated just beside Hotel Shadab near Madina circle. A green colored door with yellow walls is what you need to look out for. P.S: 'Like' the review if you find it useful.
Built in 1594, this is perhaps one of the oldest structures in Hyderabad second to only Charminar. What separates it from other monuments is the level of intricacy in the tile work of innermost hall. The founder of Hyderabad Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah built this Ashoorkhana with a lot of love and devotion towards the holy grandson of Prophet Muhammad and his progeny. This has been taken care of by the family that's currently in its 10th generation.
Nice place though requires serious conservation wirks
One of the oldest structures in Hyderabad built around 400 years ago. A place where you get close to the almighty
It gives you the feel of a bygone era
