Hyderabad 2013

Earlier this year I visited Hyderabad in India and got the chance to do some touristy things, like:

Golconda Fort – very cool complex, I’d assumed it was going to be a quick few minutes but even without knowing the history it was still an impressive experience with great views and some monumental construction.

Charminar – from photos it had appeared to be massive space (like Arc d’Triomphe) but the footprint and surround roads is much smaller. Nonetheless the views from the top and the walk around was a cool time.

Birla Mandir – My favourite part of Hyderabad this white marble complex (that bans shoes, phones and cameras) was a pleasure to walk around in the early morning as my bare feet made their way up the marble steps with the blue sky framing it all.

Salar Jung Museum – it’s a very large museum complex with a very large collection but as museums go it felt weak (though I am spoiled by the world class museums in London).

Hussain Sagar Lake – we drove around early in the morning so didn’t get the full experience. Apparently at night there are markets and light which can be charming. There’s also a giant Buddha statue in the lake.

There are quite a few other things to see in the city so make sure to do some research to find the right thing for you.

It was a quick visit and I only saw very small fragments of the city so can’t give an overall comment.
