Charminar - Review
This landmark of Hyderabad is the jewel in the crown of this city of pearls. This milestone was built by Mohammed Quli qutub Shah, the founder of Hyderabad. Built in the 16th century, this glorious tower has four graceful minarets and has 45 prayer spaces and an alluring mosque inside. The beautiful building is illuminated in the evenings and this historical structure is always surrounded by hustle-bustle of tourists and localities.
The adjoining Laad bazaar is famous for colourful shopping and is a shopping centre of the old city. Amazing range of traditional jewellery, bridal wears and glass and stone studded bangles- a speciality of the city is available here. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Hyderabad itinerary 2 days.
- When in the mosque of the Charminar, it should be kept in mind that it is a religious place so head should be covered at all times.
- It is advisable to leave the footwear outside.
- The peace and sanity of the religious place should be not disturbed.

Charminar, Hyderabad Reviews
Great place for time pass especially with Family n friends. Well situated at mid of the main Road, so easily noticeable in huge traffic too. Lots of Pearl shop around this place and it's famous for pearl. Great place for shopping especially for female. Maintained it's History in incredible India place. Loved this place, it's my memories of College days.
No comments on the structural beauty of this monument. Sad that it has not got the care it deserved. Clean gardens around the monument up to 200m radius would boost up it's beauty and make it well placed for photography. Also the shopping spree is great, but could have been a bit farther from the monument. Also having a visitor's center with amenities would prove helpful.
Really nice place to visit if you're anywhere nearby. The two main structures are a great example of middle-eastern vibe architecture and are really nice to look at. Even better is being able to see the bustle of store keeper and shoppers/visitors walking down the streets. Great place to buy Bangles at a cheap price. Only issue is that the roads are dirty (look down as you walk) and pickpockets
This is one of the most vising place of Pearl city ( Hyderabad). You can do good shopping of ladies bangles. Variety of fancy bangles are available near to this place. You can capture a good photo in front of this monument. It will be hard to get a parking place. It's better to use public transport, if not by auto is more suggestible.
I went to the Charminar during my holidays in Hyderabad. Hyderabad itself is a very beautiful place and Charminar adds a different charm to it... I went there during the evening and the Charminar looked absolutely majestic. It had a Masjid around the place which really gave a very calm and soothing vibes to the surrounding. It was a very beautiful experience and I'll never forget it.
