The year 2016 was to begin for me in a new place --- Secunderabad. I was here for nine days and this is Hyderabad-Secunderabad in my view.

The trip was first published on D Fickle Mind

Located on a hillock near the Hussain Sagar lake, this white marble temple of Lord Venkateshwara offers a wonderful glipse of the city settled around the lake. Sit here in peace and cherish the God's eye view of the buzzling city.
Dinosaur skeleton, gold postal stamps, jewel studded wall hanging and the beautiful porcelain dolls this was all that attracted me here.
To reach the tallest monolith of Buddha you have to set sail here. But there's much more to do. The laser show is said to be one of the best (and I could not see it). The water cascade the rides ---this is a place to hangout with friends & family.
A national park within a city. They don't offer a safari but you can take a jog/walk in the morning or evening. Peacocks rule this park.
The pride of Hyderabad. Climb along the spiral staircase of the minarets to the first floor and get view of the grand old city.
The 17th century mosque
The history of Deccan lies here and it comes alive every evening with the ghazals of Jagjit Singh and voice of Amitabh Bacchan during the light and sound show. Advice: Don't miss it.
The king and his men rests in peace here. (P.S.: As of January 2016 a major portion of the park was under renovation and restricted for public)
The residence turned museum of the Nizam is a collection of gold and silver. But what's more fascinating is the 176 feet long two level wardrobe. I just wonder if today somebody has a personal wardrobe of this size. The Nizam is said to have worn each costume only once and the officials here are trying to recollect them based on photographs to maintain authenticity.
Another palatial museum from the Nizams. The best among collection is the Rolls Royce Silver Ghost that is said to have done less than 356 miles.The grand Khilawat Mubarak or durbar hall with it's chandelliers is just wow. The Khilwat clock has been running for more than 100 years with the most accuracy.
The largest one man collection of antiques. My favourite: walking sticks, veiled Rebecca
Truly the wackiest car museum as described by Guinness World Records. Cars in the shape of pen, pencil, desktop, book, Camera, football, bed and even condom. The museum is the home to the world's largest tricycle. The museum also houses a few vintage cars.
