Charminar meaning “Mosque of the Four Minarets” and “Four Towers” is the most famous and essential sepulture in the city of Hyderabad, top of the land of Andhra Pradesh, India.
The great sepulture is a synonym for metropolis and the groundwork around which the glory and story of the city has developed. To envisage this 400-year-old city without Charminar is to envisage New York without the Statue of Liberty or Moscow without the Kremlin. Many Westerners refer to Charminar as the Arc de Triomphe of the East.
The sepulture overlooks another beautiful and grand masjid called Makkah Masjid. The area surrounding Charminar is also famous by aforementioned name. A thriving mart still lies around the Charminar, attracting grouping and goods of every description. In its heyday, the Charminar mart had some 14,000 shops; today the famous markets famous as Laad Baazar and Pather Gatti, nearby the Charminar, are a selection of both tourists and locals alike for jewellery, especially famous for exquisite bangles and pearls respectively.
