Hyderabad
Charminar:
Hyderabad is almost synonymous with the Charminar. Build by Mohammed Quli Qutb Shah, the founder of Hyderabad, in 1591 at the centre of the original city layout. Charminar lies in all its splendour in the middle of Lad-Bazaar - Hyderabad's famous bangle destination. The monument is illuminated in the evenings.

Golconda Fort
Golconda Fort:
Golconda is one of the most famous forts of India. The name comes from the Telugu words "Golla Konda" meaning "Shepherd's Hill". Golconda was originally a mud fort, which was rebuilt by the first three Qutub Shahi kings over a period of 62 years. The fort is well known for its ingenious water supply system and acoustics among other attractions like the palaces and the famous Fateh Rahben gun. The exclusive Sound & Light Show takes you right back in time.
 
Qutb Shahi Tombs:
The tombs of the legendary Qutb Shahi kings are at a distance of a kilometre from Banjara Darwaza of the Golconda Fort. These tombs are said to be the oldest historical monuments in Hyderabad. The uniqueness of the tombs lies in the fact that they are the only tombs in the world where the entire dynasty has been buried at one place.

Mecca Masjid
Mecca Masjid:
