Description

The Charminar is a four century old monument and mosque that is a global icon of Hyderabad and is a symbolic representation of the city. Built in 1951 by Mohammed Quli Qutb Shah, this landmark is truly the pride of the city of Hyderabad and a visit to the city is incomplete without a visit to the monument. Built of granite and lime mortar, with stucco motifs, the Charminar is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. It is in fact said to be as much a signature of Hyderabad as the Eiffel Tower is of Paris or the Taj Mahal is of Agra. Visitors to the iconic structure will be met with views of incredible Indo-Islamic architectural splendor. The Charminar consists of four 48.7 metre high minarets, along with 45 prayer spaces and a mosque. The roof of the Charminar; which is accessed via a hundred and forty nine steps, offers panoramic views of the city, including views of popular attractions like Lad Bazaar and Golconda Fort.
