Hyderabad, Telangana, is a major center for the technology Industry. Here are a few of the must visit places while you are in Hydereabad.
Ramoji Film City:
The Ramoji Film city is a must visit. When I say must, I really mean it! It covers over 2000 acres of area and is the biggest film city in the world! Lots of people visit it every day. No matter how many times you visit, you would always enjoy it like it’s the first time. It’s not just a film city, it has an amusement park too. It was founded in 1996 by Ramoji Rao, and ever since, lots of movies have been shot here.
When someone says Hyderabad, the first thing that would come to mind is the Charminar. This is the global icon of Hyderabad. It is also listed among the most recognized structures of India. It was built in 1591, by the Qutb Shahi dynasty, Sultan Mohammed Quli Qutb Shah. It is the most famous structure of Hyderabad and that’s what makes it a must visit. There is street shopping all around the Charminar area, which is worth spending time on. And, visiting this place at night adds to its beauty.
The Sanghi temple is located about 25 kilometers from the city, on the top of the Paramanand Giri hills. It has 3 big Gopurams, which can be seen from a few kilometers away. They are so big, the seem to be touching the sky! It’s one of the most beautiful temples of the state, beautiful right from its entrance. The main gate is big and very attractive. There are a lot of trees around and the area is very well maintained. The temple is made of marble, which adds to the beauty of it. Lots of movies have been shot here too.
Golconda fort was a build of the Nizams. Now, it is one of Hyderabad’s best tourist spots. From the top of the fort, we have a great view of the city. It has lots and lots of stairs, so be prepared for a lot of climbing here! The sound and light show in the evening tells the history of the fort in detail and is really interesting to watch. Near the entrance, there is a spot called the ‘clapping portico’ where you can clap and it is said that it can be heard at the top.
It is one of India’s 3 national museums. It is the largest museum in the city and the state. It is also the third largest in our country. It has a large collection of sculptures, artifacts, paintings, crockery, manuscripts, furniture, swords, armor and lots of other antiques, which were the possessions of the Salarjung family. The clock, in the ground floor, is the main attraction of the museum. Lots of people gather around it just to hear the clock strike every hour.
This is really close to the film city, and is a must see too. It is a huge water park, with all kinds of water rides. It has natural beauty and is full of greenery. It’s fun both for kids and adults!
Shilparamam is like an all year round exhibition. It’s not just an exhibition, but it makes you get the feeling of being in an Indian village. It is very cleanly maintained and has a pleasant atmosphere. It has a night bazaar too, which opens at 10 pm in the night.
