Was here second time in two days, still i miss something. This time i took guide Srinu and went round the narrow lanes of old city of Hyderabad. He was amazing to show many life styles and old buildings of Nizam era and finally we climbed the steep narrow steps of charminar to get the four corners of streets. Highly recommended, if you are serious to know the cultural part of Hyderabad.
