Savor Delectable and Aromatic Dishes
Hyderabad is famous for its regional Deccani cuisine, which features rice, wheat, and meats with aromatic herbs and spices that get the taste buds tingling. Hyderabadi biryani, a meat and rice dish, is a must-eat when visiting the city. Rice, lamb or chicken, and a slew of herbs and spices are slow-cooked to create the king of all dishes – the iconic biryani. Vegans can enjoy Qabooli biryani which uses chickpeas instead of meat. The Old Town and Masab Tank neighborhoods are the best places to savor biryani.
Paaya (goat trotters) is packed with flavor, again thanks to the spices and herbs. The locals consume this dish for breakfast with naan roti (unleavened bread), but you can enjoy it for lunch or dinner too. Finish your meal with a vermicelli pudding, which locals call Sheer Khurma. Cooked with dry fruits, milk and cream, this rich dessert is gastronomic heaven. Other delicacies to savor are Qubani ka Meetha (a dessert made from dried apricots and garnished with cashew nuts, pistachio nuts and almonds), Mirchi ka Salan (a spicy and flavorsome chili curry), and Haleem (a slow-cooked dish prepared with lamb, spices, wheat and nuts).
Discover the History and Culture of Hyderabad
Salar Jung Museum is perhaps the most popular museum in the city. Located on the southern bank of the Musi River, the museum showcases many rare artifacts from the 1st century. It also houses an ancient Quran (the Muslim holy book) made entirely from silver and gold. The museum boasts ancient paintings, sculptures, artifacts, and carvings from Egypt, Japan, North America, China, and Nepal. Antiques belonging to Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and Empress Noorjahan are also on display at the museum.
Art aficionados will love spending time at Shilparamam, in the suburb of Madhapur, where they can even find an attractive house rental. This arts and crafts village presents traditional arts and crafts of Hyderabad, Telangana and the rest of India. Check out the amazing kalamkari art, where artisans painstakingly paint textile and fabrics using a bamboo quill and natural dyes. Stalls in the massive complex offer handwoven saris and shawls, traditional jewelry, metal and wooden ware, and bed linen. You’ll also be able to see highly skilled artists engraving silver on an alloy of zinc and copper in an artform known as Bidriware.
Discover Hyderabad in the Moonlight
While there are numerous clubs and rooftop gardens with DJ parties in Begumpet and Somajiguda, head in the evening to Golconda Fort on the outskirts of the city to watch a spectacular sound and light show telling the history of the fort and the dynasties that ruled the region. Visit the fort a couple of hours before the light show to explore the palaces, temples, pavilions, and the well-manicured gardens. And make time to visit the tombs of the Qutub Shahi rulers.
Also worth visiting is the nearby Taramati Baradari, where you can witness the sun set over Hyderabad. This stunning pavilion was constructed by a 17th century Golconda king for his favorite mistress. Legend has it that the king could hear her sing from the fort, which is merely two miles away. Stand in an archway to watch the sun set into the horizon as it kisses the kings’ tombs goodbye one more time.
Explore the Historical Towns near Hyderabad
Approximately 97mi northeast of Hyderabad lies the historic town of Warangal, where you’ll be able to see the iconic Thousand Pillar Temple in the village of Hanamakonda. A massive monolith of Nandi, the bull, made of black basalt stands guard at the temple entrance. Devotees still visit this temple to offer prayers. The 12th century Warangal Fort is another historic structure that represents the architectural excellence of the Kakatiya dynasty that ruled between the 12th and 14th centuries.
See history and nature at Mahabubnagar, which is about 85mi from Hyderabad. Named after an erstwhile Nizam of Hyderabad, the town has several historic and religious sites. There’s a 700-year-old banyan tree, the branches of which span a quarter mile. A trip to the Nallamala Forest in the Eastern Ghats will allow you take in the engineering marvel of the Srisailam Dam and the beautiful cascading waters of the Mallelatheertham Waterfalls. Make the Cumbum region a part of your Hyderabad vacation to see the fields of golden yellow sunflowers stretch for miles and to see the lake, which was built in the 15th century.
