  • Charminar' is one of most popular area and monuments in Hyderabad . Good to visit one of the ancient thing. There is an entrance charge of Rs25/-for Indian residents if you want to climb up the tower. On reaching to the top of it, the view was amazing. There is a Bazaar situated all around which deals mostly with ladies items. Bangles are very famous here. At night it transforms into an amazing place due to the lighting effect It is a must watch for anyone who visits Hyderabad for the first time.

  • Iconic monument! It is currently under renovation and the locals say that after it is completely renovated, there will be a garden around it! Excited to see it once it is renovated! The entry fee is very nominal. Once you reach on top only then you realize that the monument is tall and not short!

  • The best historical monument of Hyderabad. You can name it as Icon of Hyderabad. The architecture is just brilliant. A must see for history lovers. It's been maintained pretty decently. And you could spend an hour there. The food centres, shopping joints, tea centres add more value to the visit. If you are in Hyderabad make sure you see this.

  • Charminar, for which Hyderabad famous.. beautiful and amazing... but the place surrounding is too narrow and crowded for comfortable passage.... unnecessary killing of time due to traffic... surrounding areas r famous for shopping especially Lad bazaar...
