Hyderabad: The Evolution to Cyberabad

The city of gems, lights, a thousand stories, endearingly called the Pearl City, Hyderabad offers an assortment of vacation spots going from Heritage landmarks, Lakes and Parks, Gardens and Resorts, Museums, luscious food and a great shopping background to the most modern achievement of mankind – an IT Cyberabad. To the explorer, Hyderabad offers an interesting display of the past, with a luxuriously blended social and chronicled convention traversing 400 eventful years. Here is a short description of the vacation destinations.

The city of Hyderabad
A unique blend of the old and the new, Hyderabad is a city that radiates an old-world appeal of its own. The old and the new co-exist despite a rapid surge of commercialization in immaculate concordance. Saturated with history, Hyderabad is home to old mosques and bazaars lined parallelly close by swanky new places of business and shopping centers. It is these extremes that differentiates Hyderabad with the rest.  This is the thing that precisely makes Hyderabad a city worth visiting. Perhaps more than once. 

The most notable feature of Hyderabad is the Charminar, the most established mosque in Hyderabad. Mohammed Quli Qutb Shah, the founder of Hyderabad, built Charminar in 1591 at the centre of the original city layout.It is a landmark that shows the Indo-Islamic design of its occasions. Charminar means four minarets. It is made out of limestone and rock, with four minarets on four sides, every one of them confronting an alternate road. 

Another noteworthy vacation spot in Hyderabad is the royal Golconda Fort, which was considered as nothing not as much as a design wonder amid its occasions. The origins of the fort can be traced back to the Yadava dynasty of Deogiri and the Kakatiyas of Warangal. The glorious past of Golconda Fort is narrated effectively with matchless Sound and Light effects. The unique Sound & Light Show takes you right back in time, when Golconda was full of life, glory and grandeur. The whole fortification is flanked by a 10-kilometer long divider, and with more than 80 bastions, four drawbridges, and a few mosques, lobbies and regal living arrangement. Today, while a large portion of the fortification is in remnants, clues of its lofty feeling and its past pompous still linger on. 

Hyderabad is exceptionally well known for being home to the Ramoji Film City. A film studio complex of the whole world. Situated on a sprawling land area, the Ramoji Film City has seen countless dialect, Hindi, and even some global movies being shot here. 

Hussain Sagar Lake was excavated in 1562 A.D. by Hussain Shah Wali during the time of Ibrahim Quli Qutb Shah. A desert spring amidst a generally landlocked city, the lake is an an artificial lake which gloats of a 450-ton statue of Buddha in the middle of the it. Cut altogether out of white stone, the stone monument sparkles brilliantly under the twilight and is a delightful place to sit and spend a night under the stars.
