The Charminar… What is it?
A Global icon of Hyderabad - Charminar was primarily to serve as a monument and mosque, and has carved its name and legacy among the most recognised structures , not only in India but also in the Asian continent!
Built in 1591 - alongside the east bank of river Musi , the grandiose monument derives its name from a combination of two Urdu words “Chār” and “Minar”, translating to “Four Towers”
