Not bad but there is no beach in Hyderabad.

Not bad but very traffic we cannot even go in the traffic from one place to another place. It takes so many hours to travel to bustand or railway station. Cabs are very costly to travel around Hyderabad. And but overall is good to see about 2 days. Thank you

Hyderabad Overview

History of Hyderabad

Hyderabad is the capital city of the state of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh of South India. Located on the Deccan Plateau, Hyderabad is the fifth largest city of India. The 400-year-old city is located on the banks of the River Musi. Hyderabad was founded by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah, the fifth sovereign of the Qutb Shahi dynasty, in the year 1591. Initially, Golconda was the capital of the Qutb Shahi dynasty, who ruled over Deccan during the period 1512 - 1687. The name Hyderabad literally means "city of Hyder" since it was named after Queen Hyder Mahal, wife of King Qutab Shah. With the help of Iranian architects, Hyderabad was erected in a grid format. The city was modeled on the city of Isfahan of Iran. With the construction of Hyderabad city, it became the capital city of Qutb Shahi rulers.
