  • Good monument if compared within India. Has good view from every side whether it is day or night. Best place to buy artificial jewelry. I don't have say this being a guy. But helping others is like getting helped, something. I see many locals, national and international people.

  • The Charminar Means "Four Minarets". constructed in 1951, is a monument and mosque located in Hyderabad  Telangana, India. The landmark has become a global icon of Hyderabad, listed among the most recognized structures of India. Charminar has been a historical place with Mosque on the top floor for over 400 years and also known for its surrounding markets. It is one of the tourist attractions in Hyderabad. It is where many famous Religious festivals are celebrated.

  • Beautiful monument with a vast and rich history behind it just like the rest of Hyderabad does. As the pictures speak there was restorative work going on. The Charminar is surrounded by a beautiful but extremely busy market. Good for ladies to shop for bangles, clothes etc. Charminar and the market around has a very different appeal in the night with the lights on.

  • Its very good place to visit. Highly crowded. Easily accessible. Best time to visit is evening. Very good market, especially for bangles. Block at least 5 hours to visit the place. Recommended for family. Go in day time if you want to get into Charmine upper part.
