  • We drove there hoping to explore the historical site . However we changed our minds as a little rain had rendered the area slushy. The approach area was very congested and filthy

  • This ancient monument has been renovated and stands strong. It's architecture is splendid and it's always been a busy place. Charminar looks good from outside and even looks better from a proximity but when you go inside and climb the stairs it's chaotic. People have no discipline and so does those who Maintain the monument. Gone are the days when you can view the whole of Hyderabad from this monument. Parking on a Sunday is very cumbersome, better to take a cab. Not sure what is the use of fountain if it is not used With so much rush and roads full of sellers there is hardly any space to walk smoothly. People don't give way and you have to take different paths to move ahead. I have been to this monument before and have better memories than current experience. …… The monument seems beautiful, standing in grace, a lot of small shops and hawkers peddling their wares from bangles to chappals and all kinds of items. A reliance trend store is also close by. since I didn't have energy to climb up, the kids weren't allowed up without an adult, it seems during rush a child fell down n ......... GOOD GOOD GOOD
