Hyderabad

With an unmatched blend of history and modernity, Hyderabad owns a rustic world charm. The Pearl City has the power to hypnotize everyone with its beauty. With a history as old as 400 years, Hyderabad promises a unique refreshing experience to all. This city lets you experience an entirely different fa├žade of India, where you find a beautiful balance of old and new. The lanes full of bazaars, tea shops, crowded with rickshaws and a bustle of noise go hand in hand with sky piercing malls and pulsating night life. This combination is rare yet fascinating, simple yet baffling.

This capital of southern India's Telangana state houses numerous places that let you explore the unexplored.

Hussain Sagar Lake
For those who crave some moments of peace, the Hussain Sagar Lake is a must visit. This is one huge man-made lake, and is quite popular among the tourists as well as the locals. A large monolithic statue of the Gautama Buddha, erected in 1992, stands on Gibraltar Rock in the middle of the lake.

Lumbini Huda Park
The Lumbini Huda Park is another great place to escape the exhausting city life and spend some moments in a spiffy little place.

Mecca Masjid
