"A world known heritage of Hyderabad. The design and architecture of Charminar depicts the culture of Nizamshahi reign in South India. Situated in the old city, Charminar stands unique and most appreciated design of the region. It is surrounded by famous old streets and shopping areas. The view from the top is incredibly amazing. Don't forget to experience the best biryani at Shadab Hotel near Charminar. ;) "

"An awesome place... Doesn't mind which religion you belong to... Its just a superb place.. You get good bangles and you can even buy the model of charminar... The monument is located in old Hyderabad city, but inside charminar people write on the walls, so I wish that people may stop this.And I wish that people who don't do this also should not get inspired an motivated by them.. Although an awesome monument 😀😀😀"
