The pink city Jul 03, 2011
Hyderabad has developed into one of the major hubs for the information technology industry in India which has earned it the additional sobriquet "Cyberabad".[3] In addition to the IT industry, various biotechnology and pharmaceutics companies have set up their operations in Hyderabad owing to its established Public sector in Life Science Research and Genome Valley. The city houses the most expensive residential real estate in Andhra Pradesh in Banjara Hills and Jubilee Hills. The city is home to the Telugu Film Industry, which is among the largest in India, known popularly as Tollywood.[6] Residents of Hyderabad are generally called Hyderabadis. Located at the crossroads of North and South India, Hyderabad has developed a unique culture that is reflected in its language and architecture

Day Trip to Hyderabad Oct 05, 2009
I spent 1 day in Hyderabad during my last trip to India. Flew in in the morning and flew back in the evening. As such, my impressions may not represent an accurate review of the city. Perhaps on a return trip I will be able to refine my opinions. Nonetheless, my first impression was favorable. They had the most modern and clean airport that I had seen with the exception of Mumbai. This is probably due to the number of foreign visitors the city attracks as they are second only to Bangalore in technical industry. The terrain reminded me of the southwestern U.S. high desert. Very rocky and sandy with patches of green palm groves. There was a small, clean part of the down town area which was home to our favorite place to eat lunch - the Taj Hotel. It has actually become a tradition of ours to ALWAYS eat lunch at the local Taj. While we were in town we had a joint meeting with the local and state police as well as the 2 special react forces which are stationed here duew to its south-central geographic location in India.

Hyderabad, fifth largest metropolis in India, is the melting pot of south and north India. The city is 400 years old and is noted for its beauty, mosques, bazaars, hills and lakes.There is a huge manmade lake which surrounded by beautiful parks. City is rich in history and culture, a rich and varied heritage in arts, crafts and dance. It has lot to offer for tourists. It is called City of Nizams since kings who ruled Hyderabad were called Nizams. At the same time modernity is sweeping across hyderabad which is being reflected in the skylines.

Historical Attractions of Hyderabad are: Charminar, Golconda Fort, and Falaknuma palace.

Charminar is the symbol of Hyderabad and was built in 1591. Charminar means four pillars.

Golconda Fort: The Golconda Fort provides a majestic backdrop to Bhagyanagar, as Hyderabad was called once. It is said that the Hope Diamond, the Koh-i-Noor Diamond, the Orloff Diamond, etc. originated from this place. Koh-i-Noor diamond is the costliest diamond in the world to date. The Baradari atop the hill offers a clear view of the city.

Falaknuma Palace: Built by one of the Paigh nobles Sir Vicar ul Umra, and later bought by the Nizam, the Falaknuma Palace (meaning "Mirror in the Sky") is 5km south of the Charminar. This palace was designed by an Italian architect and houses some rare treasures collected by the Nizam.

I will continue to write about other attractions very soon.
