While in Hyderabad one should see this historic place. You find a lot of bangle shops and the place is famous if you are interested in buying pearls since Hyderabad is the Pearly City and you get good pearls.

Hyderabad’s most iconic architectural delight,
Charminar is beyond just a popular
monument. It’s the
nucleus of the busiest and most vibrant lanes of the
Old City
studded with shops selling bangles and
pearls. It can be too crowded and overwhelming, but to
every tourist’s delight, the gems and hidden treasures
