The best time of year to visit South India is winter. In this way, tourists can avoid the monsoon, the incredible heat of summer, and also have the opportunity to see the Hindu festival of Diwali, the "festival of lights." But if you want to visit a dream place, you should head to Hyderabad . Situated in the center of the Deccan Plateau, Hyderabad is a 400-year-old city inhabited by more than five million people.
Hyderabad, is also the capital city of the southern state of Andhra Pradesh. It has been changing for years and is becoming more and more a tourist spot par excellence, but the uncomfortable dust of the area will be the main protagonist of all the visits you want to make. The places that you should not miss in Hyderabad are: the Salar Jung Museum, Birla Mandir, Charminar, and the Lad Bazaar. The first, Salar Jung Museum , has one of the largest private collections in the art world.
Centrally located, with more than 40,000 works and 50,000 books from around the world, the museum was declared a national treasure in 1961. The main “architect” of this great collection was the incredible Salar Jung III , who together with Jung II, toured the world in search of incomparable treasures. You can spend a whole day in the museum. Charminar and Lad Bazaar are within walking distance of each other.
Charminar is the symbol of the city and was built in honor of the eradication of the plague in 1591. Directly to the right is the Lad Bazaar . Here you will find an incredible variety and colorful exhibition of shops that are very striking due to the color of their decoration.
