Hyderabad’s history dates back to 1500. Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah, ruler of the Qutb Shahi dynasty of the ruling family in Golconda declared the independence of the Bahmani Sultanate in 1512. In 1591, he founded Hyderabad on the banks of the Musi River to get rid of the water shortage problem in Golconda. Also, the ruler ordered the construction of Harminar – a monument to the god Almighty, who helped prevent an epidemic of plague before it took the lives of a huge number of residents. Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb captured Hyderabad in 1687 and ruled for a short period. Mughal was appointed governor and soon the city received autonomy. In 1724, Asaf Yah I, who received the title of Nizam-ul-Malk (“Governor of the country”) from Emperor Mughal, defeated his rival in an official confrontation with the aim of establishing control over Hyderabad. This is how the era of the rule of the Asaf Yakhi dynasty began until India gained independence from Great Britain. Hyderabad grew both culturally and economically and became the formal capital of the Nizam kingdom. This state was the richest and largest in India. After the proclamation of India’s independence in 1947, in accordance with the provisions on independence from Great Britain, Nizam did not want to gain independence, at least to join Pakistan. The economic blockade forced Hyderabad to sign an agreement. On September 17, 1948, India gained independence, Nizam signed a document on accession to it.

Charminar – i❤️ Hyderabad
The main symbol of i❤️Hyderabd is the huge i❤️Hyderabd Charminar arch in the center of the city. According to legend, during a terrible plague epidemic at this place, Sultan Muhammad Quli Qutab Shah prayed to Allah and promised to build a mosque if it ends. The Sultan was a subadar – the imperial “ally” of the principality of Golconda on the northeastern edge of the Deccan; he later moved the capital from Golconda to Hyderabad. In 1591, during the reign of Akbar, the “Mosque of the Four Minarets” or “Four Towers” was built. At that time, the city had no walls to protect against enemies, but only huge arches and stone buildings. The square-shaped building has four columns, at each corner there is a corrugated-carved minaret, 54 meters high, built into the structure of the building. Exquisitely carved rings frame all four levels of the minaret. The symmetrical and precise shape of the tower is a perfect square, each side of which is 20 meters. The second floor is occupied by the oldest temple in Hyderabad, and on the first, during the time of Qutab Shahi, there was a college. Now the mosque is closed, but it used to be used to teach the Qur’an to the royal children. The giant arched passages on the south, north, west and east sides were the intersection of the four royal roads. Arches 11 meters wide are second only to minarets. In 1889, a clock was installed in the arches. There are two galleries, a terrace and a prayer hall along the perimeter of the building. The walls are treated with a special plaster made of marble powder, peas and egg yolk, which gives them a yellowish color. There is a legend that in the basement of the building there is a secret tunnel connected with the Golconda fortress.
