I did not climb up, and it was my second trip to this amazing monument. The place has improved and has been tiled with no vehicular movement. This has made it a bit more tourist friendly. Hyderabad without a Charminar visit is meaningless. :)

Hyderabad’s most iconic architectural delight,
Charminar is beyond just a popular
monument. It’s the
nucleus of the busiest and most vibrant lanes of the
Old City
studded with shops selling bangles and
pearls. It can be too crowded and overwhelming, but to
every tourist’s delight, the gems and hidden treasures
