"My home town"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It is one among the famous twin cities of the country, and I am born and brought up in Secunderabad. This place is mostly covered with cantonment area there is a great presence of army posts all across the town. It is extremely clean and upcoming part compared to the old city of Hyderabad. MG road is the famous shopping area in Secunderabad which has famous paradise biryani restaurant over here. City has great night life for food lovers and shoppers. Secunderabad station is the main railway station of the twin city. It is a great place to settle and mostly filled with independent house and very few sky touching apartments. There are some famous colleges in this part of the town as well. A must visit place.

"Well maintained city"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Secunderabad is a nice place for shopping and food. If you are a foodie, you will simply love this place. It is well maintained, clean and neat city. It is also a nice place to sightseeing. You can try different types of foods here. We visited in the month of June, so the climate was okay but not sure what it is like during the summer months. Evening is the best time to go around the city and have a good time while shopping and relaxing.

"Disappointed"

  • Posted Jan 17, 2013
It's good place to visit during Winter season as the temperature will be moderate and will soot any body conditions. City is very clean and neat all the places of interest is good in concept and value for time spent. Plan to visit Golkonda fort either early morning or late evening so that the weather will be pleasant and will aid to strain your body.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: It was very good and we liked the place

Activities & things to do: Best to visit city tour by hiring a taxi for the day were you can cover almost all places. Then plan to visit Ramoji film city.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: The best is to either book a train in advance or go by bus orange tours and travels get down at Lakkadikapool and stay in hotel, better you have various hotels near railway station that will soot your budget right from Rs:500/-to Rs:2000/-

About Secunderabad Tourism

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. 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.
