Visiting the twin cities Hyderabad and Secunderabad
I am in the twin cities after almost a year and a half. My most memorable trip here was when I was here when I launched a media product here a couple of years ago ..and my trips gradually stopped after I left my job .The Charminar has always been one of my favourites and I strolled along the vibrant lanes of the Bangle Bazaar and shopped till I dropped..
Well, I havent had the biriyani as yet and I am off to Warangal today, an ancient town and probably the capital of the Kakatiyas who ruled here …one of my most impulsive and unplanned trips. I dont even have a roof tonight over my head and I need to figure that out once I get there ..see you next week and have a great Deepavali if I dont see you guys before that..
Happy Diwali Lakshmi.. have a lovely time in AP
Warangal is a laid back place and you should visit Hanumakonda. Don’t forget to try the Pesaratu Dosa….have fun…it was a Naxal infested Town before when I did my studies in NITW(formally REC Warangal). Dont forget the Thousand Pillar temple, it is worth the trip…
Ah! I will be visiting these places most probably in the coming month 🙂
Hey wish you too a very happy Deepavali.
I never visited charminar during the night. Must visit now after seeing the photo.
Happy Diwali and best wishes for Warangal.
ha never been there 😀
Nice to see you’re travelling again!
Looking forward to reading about Warangal, and a very happy Deepavalli to you.
Same to you and have a colorful deepavali buddy! hope u get stable fine roof in warangal.
*sigh* I envy you! And dont forget to keep blogging. I see India vicariously through your eyes. 🙂
Hi Lakshmi! Wow! Great shots, and furthermore at night… You know that night shots are my nightmare… ;))

It won’t be wrong to term Hyderabad as one of the most culturally rich places in India. Be it the legacy of the very famous Nawabs, the colorful streets, the exhilarating monuments or the mouthwatering and delicious Hyderabadi food, especially Hyderabadi Biriyani, this south Indian city has always been a hot shot tourist destination. The industrial and infrastructural development in this city in the recent years has only been the icing on the cake. Today the hotels in Hyderabad not only cater to the tourists but also to the business and corporate traveler. There are many business hotels in Hyderabad that are being dished out by the leading names of the Indian hospitality industry. Apart from the budget hotels in Hyderabad, luxury hotels are also abundant in the city. In short be it for work or an existing vacation, hotels catering to each class can be found in the city. With so much happening in this future metro, Hyderabad is actually the place to be!
Great shot – it’s so tough to get nice night shots.
Hi Lakshmi don’t miss to watch the great monuments of Kakatiya kingdom in warangal. The architecture of Ramappa temple and many more..
