If you think the beauty of Hyderabad is only confined to its tasty biryani and the splendid Charminar, then you certainly need to travel more. Located on the banks of Musi river, Hyderabad is a historic city and is known to have been established during the late 16th century by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah, the fifth ruler of the Qutb Shah dynasty. Later on, it was ruled by the Nizams before it became a republic state and merged into India post independence. Hence, you can find numerous ancient monuments within this historic city.

Have you tried to capture the beauty of its ancient splendours? If not, then you must plan a tour of Hyderabad; the monuments here will certainly teach you in detail about the glorious past of the state. Apart from their historical significance, you will also get stunned by their majestic appearance and architectural beauty. So, what do you think of exploring these monuments in Hyderabad this season? If you are keen to know more about them, read on.

Mecca Masjid

Completed in the year 1694, Mecca Masjid is one of the largest mosques in India and is the holiest site of Islam in Hyderabad. It is one of the few mosques in India which were built out of bricks that were made from the soil brought from Mecca, the holiest site of Islam in the world.

The masjid is said to have been constructed so that the locals of Hyderabad, who were not able to afford a trip to Mecca, can also pay their regards to Prophet Muhammed. Today, Mecca Masjid has become a major tourist spot in Hyderabad and is visited by travellers from all over the country. As per local legends, the major room of the mosque contains a hair of Prophet Muhammed.

Charminar

It is certainly objectionable if we do not add Charminar to the list of historical monuments in Hyderabad. In fact, Charminar deserves to be added to every list of historical monuments in the country; such is the significance of this invaluable gem. Today, Charminar has become the identity of Hyderabad and is also one of the most recognised buildings in the world.

Charminar was built in the year 1591 by the founder of Hyderabad, Mohammed Quli Qutb Shah, and is located on the bank of Musi river. With four minarets, it also houses a mosque and hence, most of the Islamic festivals in Hyderabad are celebrated here. It is rightly said that if you are a history lover and are looking for a destination which never ceases to surprise its visitors, then it is Charminar; such is the popularity of this wondrous beauty that no tourist can avoid visiting it.
