Hyderabad, cradle of tourism in India

Hyderabad is the capital of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh and also of the state of Telangana. It has more than 4 million inhabitants. This makes it the fifth most populated city in India. Although it is a dynamic and lively city, the truth is that Hyderabad attracts attention for its cleanliness. It is a beautiful city with a long history. It offers the opportunity to visit many attractive monuments and thereby immerse oneself in a cultural atmosphere completely different from ours.

Historical and natural sites of Hyderabad are unmistakable.

The most important monument in Hyderabad is the Sharminar. It is an imposing building that also serves as a mosque and ceremonial gate. It was built in 1591. This triumphal arch with arches surmounted by minarets has become one of the icons of Hyderdabad. It is also one of the most important and famous buildings in all India. The mosque, located on the upper floor, has 45 prayer rooms and offers panoramic views of the city.

We cannot forget the natural areas either. Hyderabad has an infinite number of parks and gardens including Baag-e-Aam, Sanjeeviaiah, Lumbini and Indira Park.

Visit the famous Golconda Fort

Only 11 kilometers from the city is the Golconda Fort, which is a must during a visit to Hyderabad. It is a completely abandoned fortress city, built on a granite hill about 120 meters high. Here is a visit which promises to be exciting!

This historical place was built in 1143, when the Hindu dynasty of Kakatiya was in charge of governing this region of India. The truth is that in the course of its history, from about 1512, this place was established as an independent kingdom. However, the troops of Aurangzeb, emperor in 1687, managed to take the place.

It should be noted, however, that the fortress town of Golconda has stoically suffered two prolonged sieges by the Moguls.
