Hyderabad is one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Just like the rich cultural history of Mumbai,  Hyderabad also has attracted tourists from every nook and corner of the world to discover and experience the grand past of this city that still captivates travellers till date. Along with its culture, Hyderabad has also embraced the modern developments in the field of Information Technology. This cosmopolitan city beautifully blends the grand heritage of the past along with modern technology; thus, carving a special place in the hearts of its residents and tourists.

Alluring Heritage

The iconic facades of Hyderabad from the by-gone era weave their story through architectural design that is deeply influenced by the rulers during the period and the purpose of its existence. These ancient monuments are a great architectural marvel that have amazed the visitors for centuries.

If you are planning to visit Hyderabad for a day or two, here are some of the iconic heritage structures that you must visit during your stay in Hyderabad:

1. Charminar

Charminar Hyderabad

Charminar is an Urdu word that translates into four minarets (‘Char’ means four and ‘minar’ means minarets). This iconic structure built in the Indo-Saracenic style serves both as a monument as well as a mosque since the past 400 years. Charminar was constructed in 1591 AD by Quli Qutub Shah, the fifth ruler of Hyderabad.

Charminar is considered to be one of the finest examples of the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture in India. It was built by Quli Qutub Shah after shifting the capital from Golconda to Hyderabad and it had served as a central point for the construction of the city of Hyderabad around it. It is also known as Arc de Triomphe of the East due to its resemblance to the architectural structure.

The square structure of Charminar consists of four arches, one on each side and four minarets, one each corner of the structure. Granite, limestone, mortar and pulverized marble were used in the construction of Charminar. Each of the 48.7 meter high minarets points towards the four cardinal directions. The intricate motifs, balconies and lotus-leaf base motifs are some of the architectural features of the Qutub Shahi dynasty visible on most of their structures. The four clocks were added on each side of the building in 1889.

According to legend, Charminar was built by Quli Qutub Shah to commemorate the eradication of a deadly plague, cholera. It was after the completion of Charminar, that the city of Hyderabad came into existence.

2. Golconda Fort

Golconda Fort Hyderabad

The majestic fort of Golconda is spread over an enormous area of 11 kilometres. The vast expanse of Golconda Fort has marvelled its visitors with its grand architecture. Golconda Fort has evolved to this present structure of a grand fortress after several ruling dynasties of Hyderabad made their contributions towards it. Golconda Fort has mosques, temples, bastions, lawns and royal apartments within its premises. The Light and Sound Show narrates the grand history of this unique fort. I would suggest that every traveller should at least experience the magic of storytelling at the Light and Sound Show to enhance their knowledge about Golconda.

The word ‘Golconda’ is derived from two Telugu words ‘Golla’ and ‘Konda’, which translate to ‘Shepherd’s Hills’. The foundation of the Golconda Fort was laid by the Kakatiya dynasty in the 12th century. Quli Qutub Shah had made another significant contribution to the existing structure of the Golconda Fort by adding eight gates and 87 bastions.

Another attractive architectural feature of Golconda Fort is the Bala Hisar which is the highest point within the premises of the fort. It is said that if anyone claps at the entrance of the fort, the echo of the clap can be heard at Bala Hisar. This acoustical modification at the entrance of the Golconda Fort was used to alarm the royal family, who are almost a kilometre away from the entrance, of any potential intruders.

Makkah Masjid Hyderabad

This splendid mosque located at the south-west of Charminar was built in the seventeenth century. Mecca Masjid is one of the oldest and largest mosques in India.

Several Nizams of Hyderabad have been laid to rest in the marble graves in an enclosure of the courtyard of Mecca Masjid.

It is believed that Mohammed Quli Qutub Shah had authorised the use of bricks for construction of the mosque to be prepared from the soil of the Holy Land of Mecca. These bricks were used in the construction of the central arch of the mosque. Therefore, it is called the Mecca Masjid.

The roof of the Mecca Masjid is rested on 15 arches, five on the three sides as the western side has a high wall for Mehrab. The two enormous octagonal columns of Mecca Masjid are carved from a single piece of granite. There are inscriptions of the verses from the Holy Quran on the doors and arches of the Mecca Masjid.

The Purani Haveli is one of the finest examples of 18th-century architecture that blends both European as well as Indian style of architecture. This palace was constructed to serve as the residence of Mir Momen, Peshwa of Mohammed Quli Qutub Shah. Thereafter, the palace was acquired by the second Nizam of Hyderabad, Asaf Jah II. He then renovated the palace and had designated the palace to his son Sikandar Jah, third Nizam of Hyderabad. Sikandar Jah lived there for a few years and after ascending the throne shifted his residence to Khilaurat complex in the Chowmahalla Palace.

The palace was abandoned until the sixth Nizam of Hyderabad, Mir Mahboob Ali Khan ascended the throne and made it his official residence. Thereafter, the palace revived its lost glory and became a centre of attraction once again. Since the palace was abandoned for years, it came to be known as the Purani Haveli, which means Old Palace.

Today, Purani Haveli not only boasts of the grand architectural elements of the by-gone era that are visible on every nook and corner of the palace but also houses an interesting collection of antique furniture and other artefacts. The U-shaped facade has double-storeyed oblong-shaped wings and a single-storeyed building that served as the royal palace along with extensive courtyards.

Spanish Mosque Hyderabad

The Spanish Mosque located at Hyderabad is one of the greatest examples of Moorish architecture in India. It is also known by several names such as Mosque of the Moors, Masjid Iqbal Ud Daula and Jam e Masjid Aiwan-E-Begumpet. The architecture of the mosque stands in stark contrast to the other mosques that are widely seen in Hyderabad and other parts of the country.

The construction of Spanish Mosque was commissioned in 1887 by Sir Viqar ul-Umara after he visited the Cathedral–Mosque of Córdoba in Spain but the construction of this grand mosque was completed in 1906 by his heir, Nawab Sultan-Ul-Mulk. The mosque has a unique structure consisting of slender minarets, octagonal spires, pointed arches and minimal geometric pattern and inscriptions. These unique architectural features of the century-old Spanish Mosque makes it one of the most unique mosques in India.

The Paigah family often incorporated their understanding of architecture from far away lands as they often travelled for foreign trips in different parts of Europe. Thus, unlike other structures that were built in Hyderabad, the facades constructed by the Paigah family have a distinct architectural style in comparison to the Nizams.
