Photographs of Hyderabad

December 26, 2007
tags:

These are a few photographs of Hyderabad city in Southern India. The first one is the view of the city from Golconda Fort.

The next photograph is that of the Durgam Cheruvu (Lover’s Point)
in Hyderabad

The next two pictures are of Golconda Fort

Each city has it’s own uniqueness and this uniqueness is revealed in its most crowded parts. In Hyderabad, the old city has a flavour of it’s own.

Note the stolen electricity in the picture below, common to Indian cities.

This signboard was displayed on the streets…such “cures” are a feature of Indian life.

And the modern Hyderabad stands in contrast to the above.

    Thanks all for your responses!πŸ™‚
    I have a confession to make…these photos are taken by my daughter, not me! She didn’t want me to mention her actually, but well she had gone to Hyderabad recently and took some photographs.
    Thanks Kunal for the correction. I have made the change in the post.
    And Prax, we have some genuine Hyderabad chutney’s and pickles at home, from Hyderabad.
    Vishal, sorry, no Charminar photo!

    Nita, the pictures brought out all my treasured memories of Hyderabad which is where I grew up and went to school. My favorite memory (which is kind of imprinted in my brain since I saw it everyday on my way to school) was of buffaloes bathing in some kind of a dirty pond. Although Charminar (and the old Tank Bund) were part of the Hyderabad landscape I knew, Golconda Fort still seem s to be going strong. And the distinction between the old and new Hyderabad is just mind-boggling. Thanks for the great pictures (via your daughter)!

    Hameed, Madhubalan, innovatel and Padmini, thanks.πŸ™‚
    Padmini, the contrast is amazing, isn’t it! It’s like India has got cut into half and one half is moving forward while the other gets left behind.

    I’ve lived in Hyd for 1 year and I would like to share some of my favourite photo-ops:

    1. View in evening of Necklance Road
    from the top of Birla Temple

    2. View of Mecca Masjid and the surrounding bazaars from the top of Char-Minar

    3. Wide avenues of Banjara Hills -at Rd. No. 1 overlooking Taj Krishna Hotel

    4. Lumbini Park boat ride when you approach Buddha statue.

    5. ISB campus at Gachibowli- it’s a distant suburb right ahead of Jubilee Hills. Not only is it a famous college campus but also has hi-tech offices of several IT majors.

    6. Runway 9 – Hyderabad’s only Go-Karting course on along Medchal Road.

    7. Salarjung Museum – (On the road to charminar) – A photo-op adjacent the sculpture called “veiled Rebecca” -it’s just the most beautiful sculpture I ever saw anywhere

    8. Hyderabad Central Shopping Plaza is one of the best regions to take night-out photos. Just looks like a foreign country when taken from a correct angle.

    I could go on and on…..;)

    I am surprised to see the comments about Hyderabad from above pictures. if you want to see the real Hyderabad at its zenith one must see Raja Deen Dayal’s pictures which were published in life magazine.
