  • Beautiful structure and rightfully deserves the fame it has. It was a sunny day so we couldn't stand here for long.. Also it was being renovated.. a very good thing to keep these monuments alive I did...  more »
  • Authorities have completely neglected the monumental Hyderabad landmark. Walls are damaged, dirty , climbing up and down is really risky for the elder people. This must hand over to some private agent...  more »
  • Don't make efforts to visit. Whatever beautiful picture you have of charminar in your head, let that be. You'll only be dissappointed with the visit.  more »

  • We visited Charminar in January. Charminar means 4 pillars. Its over 425 years old now . Its cool in the inside with beautiful ceilings. Its 2 storied mosque & monument with narrow staircases and is steep and dark. Its crowded always. Its in midst of shopping area surrounded all sides by markets. The place isn't kept clean and noisy. The parking is such a pain at this place. It was hot in Jan itself. Lots of construction were happening around Charminar.

  • How to write a review of the symbol of our city Hyderabad. It is synonymous with Hyderabad and the most visited historical place of Hyderabad. The markets surrounding Charminar are World famous. The place is famous for Bangles and Pearls, though one must be careful while buying pearls here. It is better to buy pearls who are recognized by the Government.
  • It's a Nationwide famous monument so comes in my must visit list. Coming to it's architectural beauty,it can fascinate you min. 2 hours undoubtedly. You will get a view from top of it to it's surrounding. I wanna inform you that climbing to the top through the narrow passage and staircases is the toughest task which you will encounter during the exploration of it. Go for it.enjoy
  • It's a historical place. Very good looking and beautiful construction attract all person from the world. It's also one of the most attractive place for tourists. Very good market near the charminar. I suggest to person who are interest to see don't take own vehicle here because parking is not available here.
