The City of Hyderabad is the capital city of Telangana state of India. Because of the Mughal and Nizam rulers, the city has its charming beauty of Islamic traditions and culture. The vintage look of Hyderabad is mostly seen in the old city which gives a person a total outlook of ancient Islamic culture. There are many monuments in Hyderabad which spread serene vibes of the culture of Mughals and Nizams. Among all, Charminar is still ruling the people's minds. Whenever you take the name of Hyderabad or Secunderabad, these four-pillared monument flashes in any person's eyes, only if they know the city. Now that the history of Hyderabad is well known to most of the Indian and International travelers, Charminar is still an exquisite beauty.

As we visited on a Sunday evening, the market scene was quite happening because of the weekend and the holiday where all Muslim men and women came out for all kinds of shopping from groceries to clothes. It was a completely different feeling of roaming in and around the Charminar and one of the best markets in India, Laad Bazaar. The bazaar is named after bangles also called as Choodi Bazaar, the queens of Kings who used to visit and shop bangles they wanted. In those days, this market used to happen 4 times a month, but now this is completely open every day because there are no more queens. Laad Bazaar welcomes all the visitors and especially Shopaholics who love street shopping.
