Soaked in rich cultural history, Hyderabad is rightly known as the “City Of Nawabs”.
This city is renowned for its hospitality and the ideal blend of South and North Indian cultures, with an enchanting balance of Hindu and Islamic philosophies. There are also a plethora of temples, mosques, churches and monuments, in this beautiful city. The Hyderabadies speak varied languages including Urdu, Telegu, Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati and English, making the city a true cosmopolitan.
The essence of Hyderabad would be meaningless without a mention of its mouthwatering food. Needless to say, the Hyderabadi cuisine is considered to be one of the best part about visiting this city. The Hyderabadi Biryani, ‘Haleem’, ‘Double Ka Meetha’, ‘Irani Chai’, ‘Lukhmi’, ‘Naancut Biscuits’, ‘Mirchi Ka Salan’ are some of the most loved food items here. Not only this, you can also find a tasteful blend of Nawabi, Mughal and Andhra cuisine here.
Founded by B.N. Reddy and Narayana Swamy, Hyderabad is also home to “Tollywood”, the renowned Telugu Film Industry. This industry holds a Guinness World Record for being the largest in the world in terms of architecture. It also has association with the Motions Picture Association of America. Hyderabad also has the famous Ramoji Film City where one of the biggest film festivals of India, The Busan Film Festival, is hosted. It wouldn’t be wrong to call Tollywood the entertainment lifeline of the entire Andhra Pradesh.
