Started our 1st day visit from `Love Hyderabad' Sculpture located in Hyderabad's Hussain sagar. The sculpture is an added attraction to the City and the Tourists can click a selfie at the spot to mark their Hyderabad visit.

After clicking some good pics,we left to Charminar(Charminar is name of both monument and the place where it is situated).

The Charminar ("Four Minarets"), constructed in 1591, is a monument and mosque.It is situated on the east bank of Musi river.

it is widely accepted that charminar was built at the center of the city, to commemorate the eradication of "plague". As Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah had prayed for the end of a plague that was ravaging his city and vowed to build a Mosque at the very place where he prayed.This is further proved by the presence of cat face sculptures on charminar.

Just nearby charminar,there is the famous Mecca masjid.Mecca Masjid is one of the largest mosques not just in India but also in the world.Mecca Masjid construction was started by Sultan Muhammad Quli Qutub Shah in the year of 1614.This mosque is also believed to have some more sacred relics. For instance, according to some, it has the hair of Prophet Muhammed. However, the construction was completed in 1687 by the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, after he took over the Golconda Kingdom. It has been repaired many times after that.

Ladies has to wear a scarf around head to enter the mosque.Street Shopping around Charminar is famous among tourists and hyderabadis due to low cost of the items sold and varieties of kurtas,bangles etc sold there.

Without wasting much time ,headed to Chowmahalla Palace which is around 1 km from Charminar.

It was almost 4 by the time we finished our Chowmahalla palace visit.so there was no time to visit the Salar Jung Museum which was situated nearby .so it was planned for another day.

Day 2

On day 2nd ,there were 3 plans i.e to have Hyderabadi biriyani from paradise(you get the best hyderabad biriyani in paradise @ Secunderabad & Bawarchi @ RTC x roads),do shopping and visit Golconda fort.

The ruins of Golconda fort give a breathtaking view from the top of the fort.It's an herculean task for elderly and obese people to climb to the top of the fort.We just went a level below to the topmost level,and finished 2 bottles of water and returned down.That just shows how fit the soldier would have been by climbing such heights daily at that period. The fort is split into a lot of different parts spread across a large area.

Hussain sagar lake is in the shape of a heart and it holds India's biggest and largest tricolour flag(in Indira park).Hussain Sagar connects the twin cities i.e Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
