Monuments of Hyderabad

The city of Hyderabad is a relatively young city by Indian standards being only about five centuries old. Capital of the Golconda kingdom, it enjoyed a spate of monumental building activity during the reign of the Qutab Shahis. 

Amongst the most impressive of it's surviving monuments are the Qutab Shahi tombs - many of which were once decorated in polychrome colored tiles - though only some of the original tile work survives today. 

Best known for the Charminar, the city has many other fine monuments including whimsical mosques, several palaces and the tombs of the Paigah Nobles with intricately carved stucco ornaments. 

The Paigah Tombs

Paygah tombs

The Paigah Tombs commemorate the Paigah nobles who administered Hyderabad during the reign of the Qutab Shahis. Marble graves, some inlaid with semi-precious stones, and beautifully executed floral arabesques are amongst the highlights of the Paigah Tombs.
Featured here is an image of the Paigah tombs.


Charminar The Charminar in Hyderabad, at the capital city of Andhra Pradesh, is a massive arch built by Mohammed Quli Qutab Shah, in 1591 to commemorate the end of the plague in the city. The symbol of the city, the Charminar, is an impressive square monument with four minarets. The arch is illuminated daily in the evening, an unforgettable sight indeed. 

The city of Hyderabad, with its delightful blend of the ancient and the modern, presents to the onlooker an interesting skyline with modern buildings standing shoulder to shoulder with fascinating 400 year old edifices. 

It boasts of some fine examples of Qutab Shahi architecture - the Jami Masjid, the Mecca Masjid, Toli Masjid, and of course, the impressive symbol of Hyderabad, the Charminar.
