Navigating through the winding crazy crowded roads of the old city, in an auto, you pass through huge stone door like arches. At the end of it stands Charminar, tall, right in the heart of the Old City of Hyderabad. Beautiful to look at, it is....... More

Charminar is a famous landmark of Hyderabad. It is considered as a fine example of Cazia style of architecture and is made of granite and lime-mortar. Located towards the heart of the city, Charminar was built in 1591 by Mohammed Quli Qutub Shah.

Charminar has four arches, which in earlier days faced the royal streets. The minarets, which stand on the corners, are about 56 meters high. These minarets have double balcony. There is also a mosque towards the western side of the fort, on the roof.  

There are about 149 steps that lead to the top of Charminar Fort.  Tourists can have a bird's eye view of the bustling city of Hyderabad from here.
