The Hyderabad Old City Trail
Explore the historic sites by foot on a walking tour of the old city. Start at Mecca Masjid to view the tombs of the Nizams. Continue to Charminar, where you can climb to the top for fantastic views of the surrounding markets. Walk to the neighboring Laad Market and observe artisans making and selling the famous Hyderabadi glass and stone bangles. After a brief stop for chai and snacks, walk to Mahboob Chowk and engage with a local Muslim family who still reside in a devdi, or noble mansion. Finally, visit Badeshahi Ashoorkhana, the royal mourning place of the Qutub Shahi kings.
