Heart of the city & also stands as the center of the city , but most people consider other places as the center of the city. Bhagyanagar, now known as hyderabad has the most beautiful historical monument with the right name to it . (:

Located in the middle of the Old City, Charminar is a major landmark of Hyderabad. It was built by Mohammed Quli Wutub Shah in 1591 at the center of the city's original layout to commemorate the end of the plague. Charminar is named after its 4 minarets, each of which rises to a height of almost 50m and is surrounded by 4 kamaans (grand arches) that open out onto 4 major roads of the city. There is a small mosque located on the roof.

Climb the stairs to the top for a great view of the area around - particularly Laal Bazaar with its jewelry shops selling pearls and bangles. The area around is very hectic with rickshaws, pedestrians, hawkers, stalls, stores, etc..!

Try not to go mid day for best photos.

No visit to Hyderabad should be undertaken without visiting the grand and majestic centerpiece of the city that is Charminar. Translated roughly as “Four Towers” or “Mosque of the Four Minarets”, and is one of the most important monuments of Hyderabad.
