A fascinating blend of the Hindu and Muslim cultures, every frame of Hyderabad - the joint capital of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, pulsates with vivid heritage. The metropolitan section of the city comprises of the hilltop Golconda, the modern city of Secunderabad and the old city of Hyderabad which are separated by an artificial lake - Hussain Sagar. On the western end lies the Hi-Tech city or the cyber hub of the city. One of the main attractions of the old Hyderabad city are its frantic bazaars swarming with chai and spice traders. This is a major contributing factor to Hyderabad’s tourism. Among the other places to visit in the city, the iconic Charminar built in 1591 to commemorate Hyderabad’s founding, the opulent Chowmahalla palace and one of the world’s largest mosques - the Mecca Masjid are the most popular. The art enthusiasts could head to the Kalakriti and Birla art galleries. As one of the must-dos in the city, plan a day trip to the Ramoji Film City (Telangana’s film industry - Tollywood). Also, no trip to Hyderabad city will ever be complete without the delectable trifecta of Irani chai, Osmania biscuits and the quintessential biryani.
If you are a musician and looking to explore some instruments in Hampi, this is the place to bed. The boat crossing near AnegundiThis is a very interesting part of the journey when you are heading towards Hampi town, or coming from Hampi to Anegundi/ Sanapur. In either ways, you will have to cross the river Tungabhadra which is a long river cutting the place into two parts (one part has Hampi, other has Sanapur and Anegundi). And to reach to any of these parts, you will have to cross the river.There are two ways of reaching to either sides, one is to use the road and make a long way U-turn which is around 40 kms of drive,ORNow here’s the interesting part, Cross the river on a boat! How did it sound?Wait for it….If you have a bike, the boat will even carry that.Kaboooooom!When I heard that, I went all nuts. I had to try this option for sure. And there I was :)
