Hyderabad, the capital of the Indian state of Telangana, sprawls over 650 sq. km. of the northern Deccan Plateau which makes it one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country. The city has been ruled by the Kakatiyas, Khaljis, Qutb Shahis, Mughals, Nizams, was the capital of Andhra Pradesh, and is now one of the leading IT hubs of India; a true testament to the spirit of India. You can walk around the narrow streets of the old city one hour, and be waltzing through high-end malls and cybercities the next.
Getting in and around:
Hyderabad is well-connected, domestically and internationally, with the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport. Hyderabad Deccan/Nampally, Begumpet, and Secunderabad are three of the main railway stations that connect the city to different parts of India. The Inner and Outer Ring Roads provide good connectivity to various parts of the city.
There is an extensive state-owned bus network, as well as a suburban railway system. Further, the Hyderabad Metro is also under construction. However, to get around in the city, auto-rickshaws and Uber/Ola Cabs are your best bet.
