360° Virtual Reality Tours

Hussain Sagar Lake.
Hussain Sagar - It is a man-made lake that separates the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. It is famous also for the 18-metre tall Buddha statue on a platform island called "Rock of Gibraltar" in the middle of the lake, and for the Tank Bund which consists of beautiful gardens and statues of famous personalities. Boating and water sports are a regular feature here.

Golconda Fort.
Since the time it was built, Golconda Fort has been the pride of Hyderabad and Andhra Pradesh. Build in the 13th century by Kakatiyas it consists of four different forts inside a 10 Km long outer wall. There are 87 bastions, eight gateways, four drawbridges and numerous temples, beautiful palaces and mosques. You enter the fort through the outermost gateway which is called 'Fateh Darwaza', The Victory Gate. The fort is built on a granite hill of height 120 m. This gave the fort the advantage of high grounds during wars.

When it was built in 1589 the Char Minar (literally four towers) formed the centre of the city and with the charkaman (four gates) was part of the ceremonial approach to the royal palaces (now destroyed). The building is a square structure with arched gateways in the centre of each side which intersect at the centre. At each of the four corners is a tower or minaret nearly 60 m high and crowned with an onion-shaped bulbous dome. The first storey above the arches contains a circular cistern whilst on the second storey there is a small domed mosque.

Qutub Shahi Tombs.
A little away from Golconda fort are a cluster of tombs, the most authentic evidence of the Qutub Shahi architectural traditions. Ensconced amidst picturesque and landscaped gardens, known as Ibrahim bagh, is the grandeur of these tombs dedicated to the memory of the seven Qutub Shahi kings who ruled Golconda for nearly 170 years.

Sudha Car Museum.
Guinness World Record for the Largest Tricycle in the World. The Tricycle is 41 feet 7 inches tall and weighs about 3 tons with the wheel diameter of 17 feet. It is 37 feet 4 inches long. There are also wacky cars, a Camera car and the list goes on.

Mecca Masjid.
The mosque is believed to contain sacred relics, one of which is the hair of the Prophet Muhammad. The work began in 1617 and took about 8000 masons 77 years to be completed.

Around Town.
There are many ways to get around in Hyderabad. It has good bus service, passable autorickshaw and taxi service and a grossly inadequate local train service.
