Nizams, Biryani & Sweets


Enjoy the mingling of North and South Indian linguistic and cultural traits and the coexistence of Hindu and Muslim traditions in Hyderabad. A distinct style of Indo-Islamic architecture enriched with regional influences is reflected in the city's buildings. For the very famous Hyderabadi biryani visit Paradise Hotel, MG Road, Secunderabad.

Hyderabad is a foodie delight! From theme restaurants to wonderful the Olive atop a hill there's lots of eating places to try. For traditional Andhra fare try the Rayalseema Ruchulu and brace yourself for the hot dishes. Paradise Hotel clearly has the Muslim equivalent with their 'Double ka meetha' and 'Qubani ka meetha' or stewed apricots. Try the old city for Haleem, the festival favourite.

The shiny new airport and the rich Jubilee and Banjara Hills area often show a beautiful city, full of trees and wide roads. Party late into the night in the several nightclubs and pubs found all over Hyderabad.

Visit Salar Jung Museum for the Nizam's Prime Minister's amazing collection of art and craft from the world over. The old city takes you to the Charminar and the Chowmahalla Palace where the Nizam's riches can be seen. Golconda Fort is an hour's drive away and is worth a visit for its light and sound show and vast history of Muslim king and his love for the Hindu princess Bhagmati.

Drop into Shilparamam for crafts and other local art. For a taste of filmmaking in South India drop into Ramoji Film City, which can be a day-long trip. The slight nip in the winter months from November is when Hyderabad is a delight and the city is surprisingly clean and green.
