Thanks to the slowness of my #iphone4 in opening the camera app, I missed the frontal shot and ended with this rear ass shot instead! Pissed!

The Qutb Shahi Tombs near the #Golconda Forts display yet another architectural highlight where one can clearly see its Indo-Persian architectural styles. The dome is clearly of #Persian influence while the lotus shaped support beneath is of Hindu influence. #Hyderabad #India #architecturephotography
Not my best picture taken but for such a rare sighting of a #Ilyushin Il-76 at #HYD , it is very difficult not to share! #avaitiongeek #avgeek #aircraft #avgeekphoto
The #Chowmahalla Palace in #Hyderabad consists of four distinct palaces as the name suggests in Persian-Arabic, Chowmahalla Palace means ‘four palaces’ – four (char), palace (mahal). What intrigues me the most is its combination of architectural designs. Through its 100 years or so of expansion, the different palaces display Persian, Indo-Saracenic, Rajasthani as well as European styles into its architecture. It is indeed quite unique in this perspective.
If you are planning a visit to Hyderabad, I would highly recommend a visit to the Taj Falakuma Palace because it is an experience on it own! I regret I didn't plan my visit during the day or booked afternoon at the Jade Terrace (picture here) overlooking the the city of Hyderabad otherwise the experience would be even more memorable. (I booked to have dinner at one of their restaurants #Adaa)
The Palace was the former residence of the Nizam and it was built 2,000 feet on the hill above city of Hyderabad. With only 60 rooms, this is as exclusive as you can get for a piece of rich history and luxury. After passing the gate at the bottom of the hill, you will be dropped of mid way up where the entrance gate is located, then you can be driven up by a golf buggy or a horse carriage. They have guided tour during the late afternoon to early evening so can give that a go or stay for night!

According to Wikipedia, #Hyderabad cuisine also known as #Deccani cuisine, is the native cooking style of the Hyderabadi Muslims ... It is an amalgamation of Mughal, Turkish, and Arabic along with the influence of the native Telugu and Marathwadacuisines. Not to mention it is said to be the birth place for #Biryani which was introduced by the Mughals.
This is part of what I believed to be the central theatre 🎭 of the Golconda Fort. I can imagine the scale and beauty of this architecture back then. Afterall, Golconda was known as the city of diamond where major diamond trades took place. What frustrates me the most is the lack of protection against graffiti and vandalism in the ancient structure. "xxxx was here" or similar phrases were craved into the stones / walls / steps all over the fort. I feel sad yet speechless and hope something can be done soon by the federal and state governments to protect valuable history!
Street markets on the side road leading to the #Charminar #Hyderabad. A very colour scene commonly seen all over #India.
Mosque of Ibrahim Quli Qutb Shah at the summit of Golkonda fort in Hyderabad. It is one of the highest mosque in India and inside this fort's garden is also the Taramati Mosque built in the name of a female dancer during the rule of Abdulla Qutub Shah.
Golkonda Fort of #Hyderabad ... Just 225 more big stone steps to complete my annual exercise quota!
Freshly baked Irani sheermal from a local street store, similar to naan bread. #Hyderabad is a city heavily influenced by Iranian traditions and cultures due its history. With that in mind, Hyderabad is also known as the city of biryani where the dish was first introduced.
The iconic #Charminar #Hyderabad, built in 1591 by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shahi to celebrate the end of a deadly plague.
