Description

The Charminar is undoubtedly Hyderabad’s most iconic landmark. This historic 16th century mosque with grand Islamic architecture stands at the center of the atmospheric Old City. It was built by ruler Mohammed Quli Qutb Shah, the founder of Hyderabad, when he relocated his capital there from Golconda Fort due to severe water shortage and sanitation problems.
