Historical Monument in Hyderabad




Charminar Photos

The most popular landmark in Hyderabad is the Charminar, a magnificent and striking historical monument with four graceful minarets. Built more than 400 years ago, its central structure soars to a height of 180 feet. Most of the fabled bazaars of Hyderabad are located around the Charminar. The Charminar was built by Sultan Mohd. Quli Qutub Shah, as a symbol of good fortune, to ward off adversity from the beautiful Pearl City... and it stands resplendent today... as true testimony to the bygone glory !
