Hyderabad- the city of colors and great culture

Hyderabad is one of the most historical and beautiful cities in India, being the fifth largest Indian city and a capital of the equally beautiful state, Andhra Pradesh. The city is popular around the world for being the former hold of the “Nizams”, known as one of the richest monarchs in the world. Hyderabad is known as the heart of the great Islamic culture and being the most pleasant combination of the North and the South.  

This remarkably wonderful city is legendary in all the aspects including culture, history, hospitality, education as well as technological progress. The city throws up amazing attractions with its lovely and magnificent historical monuments and a great aura of warmth and superb hospitality. It undoubtedly attracts millions of visitors each year pouring in from all across the nation as well as from all over the world. People having historical and cultural orientations flock the place mostly in their quest of historical interpretations and love for old monuments and traditional buildings.

However, it is not only the large number of tourists that Hyderabad attracts, but at the same time it draws a huge mass of settlers from other parts of the country looking in for settling down here. This is because it is one of the most hi-tech cities among others in the country with great modern facilities, good access to civic amenities, flourishing employment opportunities and a superb lifestyle.

Hyderabad became a popular place by the name of its founder Sultan Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah and has gone through various rough experiences of conflicts and settlements throughout the historic period. These things have added to its heroic past with a number of historical documents and archives. All of this has certainly made Hyderabad as one of the top most significant cities in the whole of southern India, holding a vital place on the tourist map of the country. 

Some of the most popular and must visit sights in this extraordinary city include the beautiful Charminar, the magnificent Mecca Masjid, the great looking Goloconda Fort, Government Archaeological Museum, Nehru Zoological Park, the Salar Jung Museum and the beautiful Naubat Parbhat. Once you are here you would love the city for its simple yet artistic structures and a variety of colors.

 Besides this, if you are a food-lover then you would find this place an ultimate delight as you would be served with the most delicious food and unique delicacies not to be found anywhere else in the world.
