Day 1 – Hyderabad

As you arrive at Hyderabad, a representative of Remarkable India shall welcome you and escort you to the hotel.


After you freshen up, you can hop out of the hotel to explore the attractive city of Hyderabad. It is undoubtedly a mixture of the charming old world and the fast paced present.


Founded in the 12th century by the Kakatias is the historical fort of Golconda. It symbolizes the composite cultural heritage of this 400 year old city. As you explore this majestic structure, the granite walls and ramparts built by the Qutub Shahi Kings that extend around 5 kilometers in circumference will catch your eye. There are 8 huge gates and as many as 70 ramparts to this magnificent structure. The perimeter of this fort measures around 11 kilometers and the walls are about 15 to 18 foot high. Golconda was once a diamond market of the city, where rampant diamond trade took place. The Darya-e-Nur (sea of light) diamond that measure 185 carats and today housed in Iran was mined here. The other famed diamonds that were mined in this region include the Kohinoor Diamond, the Hope Diamond, the Regent Diamond and the Nur-ul-Ain Diamond.

 

You get back to the hotel late in the evening and stay overnight at Hyderabad.
