  • Truly an amazing place. I was stunned by the beauty, the carvings and how they've still maintained that place so well. I visited this place just some days before Independence Day.. and the best part was entry was free. If you're visiting Hyderabad or planning to visit you should definitely go here. not to forget the street shopping here, very cheap and affordable with a wide range of items starting with clothing, shoes and many more things.
  • What a place! This is a must visit for anyone in the city and the colours and atmosphere in an evening are superb. I’m reliably informed that weekends are particularly busy, and given the number of people on the mid-week day I visited I’d encourage to avoid too, but it’s well worth battling the crowds to get into the centre of the action. There’s so many market sellers although none are too pushy, live performances and a generally friendly vibe. The history is great, so many good photo opportunities and a real insight into the local culture. Highly recommended!
