Hyderabad is the capital of Andhra Pradesh, a state in the South of India. Hyderabad is adjacent to Secunderabad but there is no distinct border. Earlier they were separated by Hussain Sagar Lake (also known as Tank Bund in local parlance) but both cities have grown so much that now they have become one big city though administration still remains separate.
Hyderabad/Secunderabad is well connected to all parts of the country by Air, Rail and Road. Airport is located in Begumpet. The Begumpet Airport also provides international connectivity to South East Asia, Europe and North America. There are three major railway stations, Secunderabad and Hyderabad, and Kachiguda, which provide connectivity to various parts of India. In case of road, you could drop off at a place closer to where you want to go into the city.
All forms of transport are available in the city right from city buses to chauffer driven taxis.

The exhibition is an expo of various items manufactured all over India. It typically runs for 6 weeks from the 1st week of January to the second week of February.
Visit the AP State Museum that displays a stunning array of artefacts dating back to the 1st century to the 20th Century. Ranging from the Lotus Medallion of the 1st century to the Amazing Kalankari work that adorned the bed-spreads of the Nizams to a period room that displays the typical living room of the Nizam time to the Jain sculptures and Statues - this place has it all.
If you are a history freak - this is the place for you. The Entry Fee is dirt cheap and for a little more you can click as many pictures as you like. A Definite worth while visit. Not to mention total Value for money!!
Known to be the favourite dish of the Nizam's of Hyderabad, Biriyani is a dish that was originally made with lamb's meat carefully cooked with Rice. Today Biriyani can be made with anything ranging from vegetables to Chicken to Beef. Although any Irani cafe might serve this delectable dish, there are a few places that are popular than most. Hyderabad Biriyani house is one of them, and one might do well to look it up in the phone book. The Paradise Restaurant, located in the twin city of Secunderabad is another extremely popular place to savour this dish. Baawarchi is another hugely popular place.
Andhra Meal is the local eat-to-your-heart-content type food.
If Biriyani is not your choice of meal or you are stuffed with it more than once, do not fret. Hyderabad offers a variety of cuisines, and I can vouch for it as one of the best places to sample every cuisine. Palace heights, is a slightly upscale restaurant that offers great dishes with a spectacular view of the city.
The best drink in the summer months is lassi and faluda.
