  • Most visited tourist spot in Hyderabad. You will find lot of ornamental shops near Charminar. You will get pearls here. You will get pearl for 50Rs to 2000rs for single piece. Based on the quality and purity (Natural/artificial) the price varies. If you purchase pearls in shops then it is better. Be self prepared to identify original pearl and then do shopping here.
  • The architecture is absolutely Incredible and will leave you in awe. This is definitely a must see when going to Hyderabad. For those of you who don't know, the name literally translates to "Four Minarets" in English. The atmosphere is great, and if you are in the area be sure to buy some bangles as Hyderabad is known for its bangles and pearls.
