About Secunderabad Tourism

Secunderabad is the twin city of Hyderabad, located in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The name of the city was derived from the name of Sikandar Jah, the third Nizam of the Asaf Jahi dynasty. Although Hyderabad and Secunderabad are called twin cities, the cultures and histories of both the cities are completely different.

Secunderabad was a British cantonment, which was founded in the 18th century.  Hyderabad Nizam Asaf Jah II was defeated by the British East India Company and had to sign the Treaty of Subsidiary Alliance with British, in order to gain the support of the their troops in 1798 AD. The city of Secunderabad was later formed in 1806 when the order was signed by the Nizam of Hyderabad allotting the land north of Hussain Sagar to set up the British Cantonment. The present day Secunderabad is situated on the plains, with an elevation of 543 meters above sea level. Most of the area of the city has a rocky terrain and only few areas are hilly.

There are many places in this city, which are major tourist attractions including the renowned Spanish Mosque, located in Begumpet. This mosque was built in 1906 by the Paigah Nawabs. The mosque, also known as Mosque of the Moors, is renowned for its Hispanic (Moorish) style of architecture, which is rare in India. While in the city, the travellers must pay a visit to the Rashtrapati Nilayam, Trimulgherry Fort, Ujjani Mahankali Matha Temple, Sayedani Maa Tomb and Mosque among the others.

The city is in close proximity to Begumpet Airport in Hyderabad. The city has its own railway station, which is the head office of Southern and Central railways. Secunderabad is well connected to various cities of southern India by road.
Secunderabad has a tropical wet and dry climate, which stays hot from late February to early June and the winter starts from late October to early February, which is the best time to visit this place.
