This is another great stop that is situated in Old Hyderabad - a rustic part of town. If you are nominally fit, you can definitely scale the steps and enjoy the views and history. Use a guide and offer to pay no more than Rupees...More

Good to see the charminar. It is located nearby charminar bus stop. It is so sensitive area and most beautiful area contains special bangle stores for ladies. It contains four minars around it. It is an amazing view from top.

We went pre-Diwali & market was full of people, unable to walk properly on road. Went to buy few bangles & pearls, but not sure whether we paid right price or not. Since huge scope for bargaining.

If it were not for the Chowmohalla palace and Nizam's museum, I might have never come across the Charminar. While I only visited the site from far, I found the structure formidable. The narrow lanes and the traffic and ensuing chaos prevented me from exploring...More

Char minal is an old monument. It’s very beautiful. It’s a pride of Hyderabad city. But surrounded by busy market.

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
