We have 2 Era's in Hyderabad history, pre Chandrababu Naidu, post Babu Naidu in pre Babu we have Golconda Fort, Charminar, Mecca Masjid, Masab Tank, Hussain Sagar, Parade Grounds, Abids, Nampally, Secundrabad, Toli Mosque, Begumpet, Osmania University, Salarjung Museum, Birla Mandir, Toli Masjid, Legislative Assembly, etc.,
There was a man Hussain Shah Wali, people were dying from lack of water and draught and they went to this pious man Hussain Shah Wali to give them solution, he was hardworking, he took with him 400 men and women and started digging a man made pond when the pond was complete he prayed , until recently this pond served the drinking needs of Hyderabad. This is the biggest man made pond anywhere. This is now known as Tank Bund, for there is a Tank on display from the 2nd World War. Now this pond is lined by a beautiful road, called Necklace Road, 18 Km. long, there is I-Max Shopping Complex and theater along it with numerious parks, Boats Club, Ferry Rides, Afloat Restaurent on a yatch. There is Secretrait nearby the seat of the Cheif Minister of the state of Andhra Pradesh, where he is present solving problems of his state Andhra Pradesh.
Legislative Assembly is near it and there is open air theater, Ravindra Bharati a drama and stage theater, Nampally Railway Junction, a Bogie repair yard biggest in South India. Police Central Control Room, Birla Mandir made of Marble and artistically lit up in the night Abids Circle, this has the biggest shops concentration in one area since now 150 years.
We are a city famous of Gem Traders so we have CARAVAN just look at this whole area to know the beauty of planning went in it. The KOHINOOR was cut in this area of the old, this is one cluster of things I describe and if I go on like this. many words limit of dooyoo will not be enough for me.
We have Fateh Maidan Stadium, it has got this name for being a camp to the Armies of the 1st.Nizam (Administrator) this is the meaning of word Nizam, we have Lakdi-ka-pool (Wood Bridge) very old, Salarjung museum (Biggest collection of artefacts by a single man) Golconda Fort (450 Years old) Sound and light show conducted here is worth seeing. Osman Sagar a beautiful lake, Zoological Park where we have safari rides , we are inside a bus and Lions are free around us, there is a cute meter gauge train ride for about 45 minutes along the zoo.
We have big network of metro trains commuting from east to west and north to south every area is accessible, we have city buses in every nook and corner of the city, we have Auto-Rikshaw 3 wheel, yellow colour, black top like cute butterflies spread on all roads of Hyderabad, they charge you with meter no bargains no headaches, get on get down and pay the meter, call taxis available everywhere, call them and give your location and go where your heart desires they charge you by kilometer. We have sight seeing tours of all historical monuments run by Tourism
Department, they take you to Badshahi Ashur Khana, 7 Tombs , many other worth visiting places. Renuka Choudhary, India Tourism minister is from Hyderabad.
Everything is cheap in Hyderabad, you will love to spend money just to have the pleasure of spending this you wont get anywhere in the world. Everyone is bigger than you in other parts of the world, the Shop Owner, the Taxi Driver the Bus Conductor, the Restaurant Waiter, but in Hyderabad culture the SPENDER is the BOSS.
Culture ok, we will talk about culture, we have Urdu, Telugu, Hindi, English understood by every child of Hyderabad, every other place people worship their cities, they resent outsiders they dont want to share their city with anyone, they have gangs for this purpose. We dont worship our city , we LOVE it and we want you to come judge and see our love is justified on not ????? we have world renowned colleges and universities.
I always find people smiling on Airport and Railway stations of Hyderabad , it may be because of the humor of Hyderabad, you hear loud sounds of laughter all around, because we have the longest running comedy stage show in the world (Adrak-ke-Panjay) evolved from our culture, it entered (Guiness book of world records) Ram Gopal Verma is a product of Hyderabad. We all owe these achievements to our delicious Biryani.
We have BIRYANI everywhere in the world : Hongkong, Karachi, Chicago, Toranto, London, New Jersey, Melbourn, Sydney, Auckland, Wellington, Jeddah, Dubai, Cairo, come taste Hyderabad Biryani and tell us, we want it from your mouth.
We have unique cuisine available in all corners a mixture of food from north, south, east, west India blending in our culture to bring a flavour of its own, we have Dhabas, 5 Star Hotels, popular Resturants spread all over our city. There was a plauge in old times, the King Quli Qutub Shah(Ibrahim) built CHARMINAR as a triumph over this plague.
All Historial buildings in hyderabad has combination of architecture Afgan, Hindu, Persian, Arab mixed togather to produce buildings nowhere visible in India, Mecca Masjid minarets are based in a huge culdron cut out from solid rock. This is worth seeing and believing what I am saying above.
Italians say come to Naples and die, we say come to Hyderabad and learn to live life, we have around 2500 water bodies in and around, no severe cold and heat, we have moderate temperature ranging from 15 to 40 degrees. Easy transport, cheap shopping, good food, happy people (no resentment) and loads of History and pretty Geography.
We have International Airport, No Sea tho, well connected by Road Network and Air to all parts of India, we are 600 Km from Mumbai (Bombay) 550 Km from Chennai (Madras) 450 Km from Banglore. Modern Hyderabad is improving fast, roads widening, townships, arcades, malls, formula one circuit, flyovers, stadiums are being constructed at supersonic speed and still a flat in prime location cost Rs.700,000/= (US$ 15,500) is that CHEAP or what ?
Yo WORLD checkout Hyderabad, a city of History and pretty Geography !!!!!
Summary: Come to believe me
