Hyderabad is the fifth largest city in India which is the IT hub of south India. Hyderabad and Secunderbad are twin cities, separated by Hussain sagar, a man made lake. A natural and sophisticated blend of old and new, an old ‘Nawabi’ culture with a new pro-active approach and hospitality. The teeming bazaars of the old city, in the midst of which stands the 400-year-old Charminar, the modern shopping complexes and ultra-modern malls in the newer areas of the city add to the charm of Hyderabad. The Golconda Fort, capital of the kingdom by that name, is today very much part of the city, as is Cyberabad (means Cyber City), a new local area created to keep pace with the zooming Information Technology and Tourism sector. Pearls, bangles, silks, computer software, handicrafts and above all a delectable cuisine add to the splendor of this great city. It is one of the most densely populated cities in the country and is home to about 10 million people. Hyderabad has a mix of Hindu-Muslim culture with a number of monuments of historical importance, including the very famous Charminar. It has too many tourist attractions that would often make it difficult for a tourist to set his priorities. While art lovers cannot defy the attraction of the huge repository of antiques displayed at the Nizam Museum and the Salarjung Museum would offer a delightful insight to the rich imperial history.
