Hyderabad’s population of 6.7 million occupies 250 square miles along the banks of the Musi River. A global trading center for large diamonds, the city is also a major player in pearl trade. Hyderabad is so ingrained in the pearl industry that it received the nickname “City of Pearls”. Gems play a big part in the cultural and traditional wares found in the city’s historic bazaars.
Popular Destinations in Hyderabad
Looking for activities once your private jet arrives in Hyderabad? Hyderabad is a great center for shopping. Laad Bazaar is the most prominent of all local bazaars and perfect for the avid shopper. Those who are interested in other activities, however, can visit any of the attractions listed below:
MOB: MOB is India’s first exclusive Belgium Beer Bar. Simple pleasures including finger goods, Belgian beer, and plenty of good conversation await visitors here. This space appeals to all ages and genders, so crowds flock on a nightly basis. Friday and Saturday evenings are usually packed , so many prefer to dine either before or after sampling the beer here.
Charminar: Charminar is Hyderabad’s oldest mosque. Constructed in 1591, the structure stands at the heart of all activity. Shopping markets and stalls, as well as crowded tourist attractions decorate the area. The mosque stands 56 meters high and is unfortunately not open to the public. Each night, from 7 PM to 9 PM Charminar is lit up; with the proper camera, this is the ideal photo opportunity.
Lamakaan: Lamakaan is an open-space, interactive cultural center located in the center of Hyderabad. Those looking for a creative outlet will likely find one here. Activities are often listed on the bulletin board at the Irani café. With its leafy patio, free Wi-Fi, and cheap snacks and tea, Lamakaan caters to artistic individuals who gather to collaborate on life’s mysteries. Outside, the area is classified as a noncommercial “inclusive cultural space”. Organic markets, exhibitions, music, films, and plays by unknown artists can be found here.
Qutb Shahi Tombs: Approximately 2 km northwest of Golconda Fort lies a collection of 21 domed granite tombs. It is among these landscaped gardens that almost just as many mosques sit. It is also here where seven of eight Qutb Shahi rulers are buried. It is in these tombs where courtesans, physicians, family members, and a few privileged favorites not only spent their lives, but will also spend their eternities.Visitors can find additional information about this exhibition near its entrance.
Health Museum: Not for the faint of heart, nor the squeamish, this 1950’s classroom throwback is a collection of bizarre public health and medical paraphernalia. This conglomeration of materials is amassed as a museum. The large replica of a crab louse is potentially its most terrifying feature.
Lumbini Park: Lumbini Park is the perfect place for a day’s end. A popular music fountain, as well as gorgeous sunsets make Lumbini Park the place to be once all the shopping and hiking is completed.
