Hyderabad has its own culture and I have found that most people in Hyderabad are very humble and hospitable. As they say "light lo yaro" (if literally translated in English, it means 'chill dude'), one can observe that people are quite relaxed and there is absolutely no rush in Hyderbadis' life. Culture and city of Hyderabad are a reflection of Nizam's dynasty. I always wanted to explore the city, see old palaces, meet Hyderabadi's and learn about the Nizam culture. Fortunately I started my first job at Hyderabad city and it gave me the opportunity to explore the city, monuments and culture.
My cousin and I decided to explore Hyderabad old city and culture. We made a list of old places to visit in Hyderabad on weekend. Idea was to do a budgeted tour of all old monuments on my bike and capture them in my DSLR. In two days, i.e. on a weekend (From Jan 25 to January 26, 2014), we managed to visit places like Charminar, Laad Bazaar, Chowmahalla Palace (Nizam's Residence), Mecca Masjid, Hussain Sagar lake, Golconda Fort and Jubilee Hills. I have shared a small itinerary for two days and would recommend to start your tour early morning:
