    Things to Do In Hyderabad

    1. Visit Charminar

    Charminar, popularly known as the Arc de Triomphe of the East is the most visited tourist destination in Hyderabad. The literal meaning of Char Minar in the language Urdu translates to four minarets or towers. These four towers are arranged in a perfect square shape with each side having an arched dome and facing four different streets. The Charminar is the perfect blend of Persian, Indian, and Islamic ways of construction and design. This is easily visible to us through the domes, arches, minarets, and embellishment on the ceiling. The second story of the Charminar is a place reserved for prayers and is the oldest mosque in the whole of Hyderabad. This place is extremely crowded during prayer times, especially on Fridays.  One can also take a descriptive look at the courtroom that was used during the Qutub Shah reign in Hyderabad. Just outside the Charminar are the bangle and pearl Bazar. Hyderabad right from its inception is known for pearls and this legacy continues to date. Both these markets are the best places where you can showcase your haggling techniques with the shopkeeper.
