History of Secunderabad
Secunderabad is the twin city of Hyderabad, located in the state of Telangana. 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.
