Charminar Hyderabad

Charminar, Hyderabad – A fine example of Islamic architecture

City of Pearls and also the City of Nawabs – Hyderabad is identified with one architectural masterpiece and it is undoubtedly the Charminar. It is the global icon of the city and stands as an exquisite example of elegance since past 400 years.

There is a lot to explore and experience in and around Charminar. It is a fine example of Islamic architecture, with four minarets supported by expansive arches and open into four streets. The views of the Makkah (Mecca) Masjid close to Charminar, from its upper floor looks mesmerizing. Once you have explored the magnificence of this edifice, you can feast upon some local cuisines, especially the Hyderabadi Biryani in Laad Bazaar or shop for elegant pearls and souvenirs in Pather Gatti. Bhagyalaxmi temple adjacent to Charminar is also a popular place to visit.

The sad part is that Charminar is today loosing its grace because of excessive pollution and construction activities around it. It is preferable to opt for public transport to reach Charminar to avoid the chaotic parking issues as there is no parking space. The Charminar is overcrowded on weekends.
