A WEEKEND TRIP TO CHARMINAR

When anyone says 'A trip to Hyderabad ' , the first thing that comes to mind is a visit to 'CHARMINAR' . Charminar is one of the major landmark in the city . A square structure with four towers , in its four corners .It was built by Mohammed Quli Qutub Shah . It is an elegant mosque , the oldest in hyderabad . From the first floor , we can view the whole city .


We made a recent visit to this beautiful monument . Here are some of our clicks :

I love that city Shama...
For me, the Charminar has a lot of memories associated with it. It was a trip during my college days with my frinds. How we freaked out in the choodi bazaar...

Thanks for bringing back those moments through your photographs
