Established on the southern banks of the river Musi, Hyderabad is a city of rocky terrain that has with time transformed into a hustling metropolitan offering the best Biryanis ever. The city has one of the best varieties of pearls and gemstones in the world. Home to various IT firms and pharmaceutical companies, Hyderabad is a hub for commercial business processes.

Hyderabad is an old city that has been known for its rich heritage and culture. An ideal destination for foodies as it offers food traditionally cooked in the Mughal and Persian style. The large variety of lip smacking biryanis makes anybody's visit perfect. Hyderabad, the sixth most populous city in India, is the capital of both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Founded in the late 16th century by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah, it later became the capital of the larger state of Hyderabad ruled by the colourful dynasty we know as the Asaf Jahi Nizams. The Nizams ruled over Hyderabad for two centuries till 1948. Their state included regions of present -day Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka. In a famous episode of modern Indian history, in 1947, the then Nizam, Osman Ali Khan, refused to join either India or Pakistan, but the following year the state was annexed by India by force. Hyderabad’s twin city, Secunderabad, was founded in the early 18th century as a British cantonment, separated from Hyderabad by the Hussain Sagar Lake. Hyderabad is known for its unique culture- the aromatic biryani, the lilting tongue called Dakkani or Hyderabadi, the rich legacy of the Nizams and the stunning Charminar. The region is also famous for its diamond mines that produced some of the world’s most coveted rocks- the Kohinoor, the Regent Diamond, the Hope and the Orloff. In the last two decades, Hyderabad-Secunderabad has  grown into a hub of information technology, and is sometimes given the sobriquet ‘Cyberabad’.

The city is also home to the Telugu film industry (predictably called Tollywood), the third largest in the country. Hyderabadis are proud of their city, of the colourful stories behind its splendid palaces, of the Nizams with their many wives and as many eccentricities. They love to sip Irani chai at small joints in the shops around Charminar. They love the larger-than-life Tollywood stars, who exhort them to buy cola from gigantic hoardings, and who routinely step out of sprawling mansions in the upmarket Jubilee Hills or Banjara Hills to add histrionics to the political scene. Also, the city has developed to become a hub for the IT sector along with the pharmaceutical and BPO processes making it a busy commercial city. The wide range of precious and semi-precious stones and pearls and intricate art and handicraft make Hyderabad one of the most sought after destinations among the tourists. To top it all, it is the home to one of the very popular attractions in the country, Charminar.
Hyderabad is one city that still holds its beautiful old world charm along with the modern day elegance. Remember the sensuous ‘Ooh La La’ song from ‘The Dirty Picture”; it was shot in the Ramoji Film City of Hyderabad. ‘Hero Hiralal’, starring Naseeruddin Shah and Sanjana Kapoor had a few scenes shot at the Golconda Fort, Hussain Sagar, and the iconic Charminar. Some other popular movies that were shot in Hyderabad are Bobby Jasoos, Wanted, Daawat-E-Ishq, and Bewafaa.
Vacation in Hyderabad is always a one-of-a-kind experience but this is doubled up if you happen to visit during any of the festivals and events. Festivals like the Deccan Festival, International Kite Festival, Lumbini Festival and Ugadi Festival. On top of all these festivals and events unique to the state, festivals like Holi, Deepavali, Id-Ul-Fitr, Christmas are also celebrated with equal gusto and pomp. List of festivals in Hyderabad is as big as the city itself.
