Default Re: Need help regarding Hyderabad sight seeing...

Hello Friends,

I am reaching Hyderabad from Bangalore on Friday night (around 10.30 PM). Have two options to stay (@ friend's place either in Begumpeth Brahmanpura or somewhere in Secundarabad).

Need your inputs :-

1) Which is the best / quickest place to reach from the above (after I cross Hyderabad airport) and what will be the route?
2) On Saturday, I am planning to visit Golkonda fort (Sound & light show), Birla temple and Charminar (for shopping).
- So, how can I plan / route (what to cover 1st etc)
- Whether to hire auto / taxi or I can drive easily to all places
3) Any other suggestions & route to return to Bangalore if I start early on Sunday morning.

After you cross the airport, you will come to the PVNR. This is a long flyover (11 kms or so) and it will land you in a place called Mehdipatnam.
Continue on the main road, it will take a natural left turn, till you reach another flyover.
Don't climb this flyover.
Under it is a traffic signal.
Take the left turn. This is Banjara Hills Road Number 1.
Continue straight till you come to a Y junction.
Keep right.
You will climb a flyover. Under the flyover is Panjagutta.
Continue on the main road. You will approach another flyover.
This flyover spans across both ends Begumpet.
Once you cross this flyover, you are in the Begumpet Brahamwadi area.

Golkonda is known for its lights show. Its in the evening.
Charminar shops usually open around noon.

The same route in reverse.

Excellent. Thanks ! That was very quick.
Can you also suggest a route in case I have to go to Secundarabad instead of Begumpeth.

neo - Secunderabad is a large area. You may need to tell us which hotel/ landmark you mean.

But if you mean you want to reach close to Secunderabad railway station, continue straaaight from the Begumpet flyover (where bblost's directions end) for another 2-3 kms, hitting 2 flyovers on the way, till you hit a Y junction with a traffic circle (and you will see St. James' Church right in front), take the right and continue straight post one red light ... you will be practically at Sec'bad railway station.

As for your route query, go to Birla temple and Hussainsagar lake (nearby) first ... then head to Charminar in the afternoon and to Golkonda by 4 or 5-ish. Climb up the fort and stay back for the sound and light show that starts about 630 pm or so. Its nice (with Mr. Bachchan's voice) but a little long at nearly 45 mins or so. Make sure you carry a mosquito repellant cream for the show. You can drive to all the places ... but for Charminar suggest you park a km or two away unless you're heading there on a Sunday, in which case you can park at the Parking area of the hospital that is right next to Charminar !
