Hyd Trip Day 2

Had made up my mind to walk a bit in the city and on the Necklace Road (Surrounding the Hussain Sagar Lake .) So woke up at 5 and walked around the neighborhood for two hours. The whole feeling is of a new place somewhere in Pakistan. The no of mosques outnumber the No of trees in the locality . The buses , streets and malls are flooded with Females in Burkhas.Every other shop is a Bakery or a butcher shop . The Architecture of this place is very simple, every building be it a hospital, court , station looks like a mosque.



After a heavy breakfast went out to see The Charminar. The monument was built by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah in 1591 as a promise made to god to end the plague. The Masjid became famous due to the four huge minarets and so goes the name Charminar. The view of the city from here is great and also of the Mecca masjid near by .

The Charminar

The Golconda Fort was built by the Qutub king Ibrahim Quli Qutb Shah Wali. The guide with me did not bulb much and much of his explanations were true the architecture. The most fascinationg thing about the place is that it proves the supermacy of our ancestors in architecture and engineering.The security of the King was full proof . It was so hot but the enthu of the guide made me cover the whole area.I advice if any one is visiting this place to go in the evening , as it will be more pleasure to watch .
