Charminar, Hyderabad Reviews - Write a Review
Wow this is such historic place one should definitely go to this place. Well preserved historic stuff so many people and so much of noise outside the building and this place seems to so busy always reasonable price good place to take candid pics with your loved one. Ha ha ha we can get products so cheap around this place all you need is good bargaining talent and two things can be archived at the same time one is like we will see the historic places and we can do shopping also.
Charminar is located in middle of street surrounded with markets and very crowded street. In morning from 10:00 till 5:30 they allow you inside the Charminar and in evening there is lighting display on Charminar. There are arch and gates welcoming you towards Charminar. You will find small food vendors, fruits stalls, Jewellers and bangles shop. Best if you come near this place, park your vehicle outside this area and walk. In this way no problem to get parking space and to avoid crowds and save time.
Charminar!! Must visit place of Hyderabad. One of the Historical place. Good place to visit. Very much crowded. Difficult to get parking place. There is a entry fee to go inside the building. Narrow spiral stairs to climb the building. You can see a beautiful city view from the top of Charminar. It is surrounded by Market place. Good place to buy jewellery and other fashion items.
This is a nice short stop, good photo op but nothing more. You can climb one tower but not worth it. it looks elegant from a distance but so much while in it. Be careful about your belongings. it is a crowded place. The area near Charminar is thickly populated. But a very good experience to see true Hyderabad. It is a huge market of ethnic dresses and jewellery. Charminar as a monument is less visible due to huge crowd around the monument. But without seeing the Charminar - the iconic monument, visit to Hyderabad will not be treated as incomplete.
Good place to visit. Too crowded and too much of traffic at all times. Should avoid visiting on weekends and holidays. But it is the hustle bustle which makes it unique. Avoid going in a cab. If you can get one two wheeler then you can explore and enjoy to the fullest.
