The Charminar is always a beauty. Seeing it in real, it was more impressive than I had imagined.
On an evening during the Ramadan festival, it gets more colourful and buzzing with activity. When I visited a few days ago (Sunday, 3rd April 2022) the area was heavily crowded, which reminded me of Ranganathan Street, Chennai. There were hawkers selling everything imaginable. From Bangles, Necklaces, Ladies’ wear, Kidswear, Footwear, Handbags, Suitcases, Household items and more.
The Charminar (‘four minarets’) constructed in 1591, is the landmark of Hyderabad, Telangana, India.
