HYDERABAD … CITY OF NAWABS !

With a 425 year history, and through many a dynasty’s uprising and downfall, Hyderabad has seen so much over the centuries. The testament to its glorious past lies everywhere you look, from the imposing forts to quaint tea stalls scattered all over the city. From biryani to laad bangles, from Urdu infused Telugu to pearls, from the old city to the IT hub, nobody does it quite like the Hyderabadis.

From acing the old world charm, Hyderabad is now briskly striding towards being the Entrepreneurship Capital of India. And if that isn’t enough, the city is now home to global giants like Amazon, Google, Apple and Uber who now have their second largest offices in the world here. The already illustrious landscape now boasts of state-of-the-art infrastructure that houses tech parks, corporate headquarters and a booming startup ecosystem.

Rapidly growing into a force to be reckoned with, not just in India but now around the world, it is no surprise that this city is one of the top five cities that contribute towards the country’s GDP. But what makes the city truly special are its people and their heartwarming attitude towards guests and life in general.
