Hyderabad’s most iconic landmark, Charminar is a notable monument and mosque that reflects the Indo-Islamic architecture of its times. Constructed of granite and limestone, at each of the four cardinal corners of the monument are 56-metere high ornate minarets with double balconies. Stairs lead to the second level, which is also where the open-air mosque is. The archways of the Charminar open out on to the streets for a panoramic view.

An oasis in the heart of Hyderabad, the Hussain Sagar Lake is named after Hussain Shah Wali. The main attraction at this manmade lake is an 18-metre high, 450-tonne statue of Buddha in the centre. Carved out of white granite that took two years to complete, it virtually glows especially on a full moon night. Hussain Sagar Lake is also popular for boating and along its periphery are other famous city attractions including Lumbini Park and Birla Mandir.
