  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

Charminar is the landmark of Hyderabad which is visited by many a tourists. Occupying a prized place on the map of Andhra Pradesh, this wondrous monument is located centrally in the old city. This wonderful monument reflects a great deal of elegance and is a symbol of the fighting spirit of human beings. This monument is a mosque with four minarets. It is surrounded by several shops of the Lad Bazaar.

It was built by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah in 1591 to commemorate the complete eradication of plague from the city. He was a great ruler who contributed a lot to the heritage and wellness of the city. The monument is a testimony to the promise of the ruler to Allah. When the entire city was gripped by the deadly disease, plague, the sultan prayed to Allah to remove the disease. When his prayer was answered he made this mosque in honor of Allah.

Architecture and Attractions

The monument was built with granite and lime mortar in the mesmerizing Cazia style of architecture. With a height of 48.7 m, Charminar has four stories and the fourth story offers breathtaking sights of the city. All the four minarets of the monument are beautifully carved. Another striking feature of the monument's architecture is the floral motif on it. The mesmerizing Islamic architecture reflects in the arches and domes of the monument. The beauty of Charminar increases manifold when it is illuminated. The main gallery inside the monuments has 45 covered prayer spaces with a large open space in front to accommodate more people for Friday prayers.
