Hyderabad, the capital of India’s southern state of Telangana, was ruled by a succession of colourful dynasties for centuries, all of whom left their mark in its extraordinary monuments and buildings. The so-called City of Pearls is full of attractions, from traditional bazaars and craft shops to glamorous new shopping malls and plush restaurants in which to enjoy diverse and delicious regional cuisine.
Arriving in Hyderabad
An eclectic blend of ancient and ultra-modern (Hyderabad is the Indian home of IT giants Google and Microsoft), this bustling city is a magnet for business travellers, and tourists who are looking for a destination that still retains its own individuality rather than a homogeny of predictable resorts and attractions. The result is a destination full of interest and energy.
Book a flight to Hyderabad with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a destination that hasn’t been over-sanitised but still holds onto that authentic Indian feel. It’s hot, busy, and the scent of spices is heavy in the air, making it a truly memorable and genuinely Indian experience.
Many of the sites and attractions are clustered into the Old City, the historical quarter of Hyderabad. Here you’ll find the stunning Charminar (literally ‘Four Minarets’), and the view of the city from the 48metre-high towers is breathtaking.
The Chowmahalla Palace at Khilwat is well worth a visit, while the Qutb Shahi Tombs have the iconic domed design that is instantly recognisable as a classic Indian architectural signature.
Golconda Fort is magnificent, and puts on a show-stopping light and sound display that tells the story of Golkonda against the dramatic backdrop of the fort itself. After a visit it’s well worth exploring the labyrinth of streets that wind their way around the base of the fort for some locally-made souvenirs and trinkets.
To find out why so many high-tech companies are making Hyderabad their home, head to the B.M. Birla Planetarium and Science & Technological Museum, an interesting and eclectic museum.
Flights to Hyderabad with Qatar Airways land at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport.
