Hyderabad Travel Guide

Hyderabad, which is about 500 years old, is the capital city of Indian State of Andhra Pradesh. It is situated on the Deccan Plateau. The city has an average elevation of about 500 m above the sea level. Most of the areas have rocky terrain. Originally, the city of Hyderabad was founded on the southern banks of the river Musi. Now, the so-called original Hyderabad city is known as the historical ‘Old City’. The ‘Old City’ is the home to the Charminar and the Mecca Masjid. Many new constructions – government buildings and landmarks – are going on in the city center, especially on the south side of the Husain Sagar Lake. The fast growth of the city, along with the development of adjoining city ‘Secunderabad’ and adjacent municipalities, has ensued in the creation of a vast and densely populated metropolitan region.

With various software firms, call centers, and business process outsourcing (BPO) companies being establish during the early 1990s, Hyderabad has become one of the key areas for such information technology (IT) and IT-enabled service set-ups. Many pharmaceutical companies like Aurobindo Pharma Limited, Divis Labs, Dr Reddy's Laboratories, Hetero Drugs Limited, Matrix Laboratories, and Vimta Labs are located in the city.
