    Charminar ka jalwa
    Good historical place to visit but too crowded. The place needs to be be maintained by the authorities for cleanliness as the locals, hawkers, shops and the tourists litter the place with disposals. People over there should be advised and fines to be imposed on breaking the rules. It is a pity that such a beautiful historic place is not maintained. One should not forget to have the falooda and lassi nearby. Shopping for glass bangles is a must for the ladies.

    Charminar is now getting too much filled with people, it's always very busy, and no proper management team is there. people are fighting over and over to reach a certain place, The stairs are very very steep if you want to climb to the top, the view is like, you are watching people everywhere. wherever your eyes turn you will see the crowd. Many staircases are closed due to maintenance, many rooms are closed, yes it's a famous spot in Hyderabad other than that I will not say it is a must-visit.

    BEAUTIFUL VIEW
    Historical CHARMINAR is the centre of attraction in Hyderabad. It is located in the midst of buzzing bazars. It is a simple structure containing four minarets. There are there are stairs with narrow & steep steps. In the upper floor one can see archways leading to balconies overlooking all four sides. These balconies provide beautiful views. Local culture is visible from the structure. The structure loses its worth due to the poor maintenance. In view of the steepness of the steps older people & those with knee issues will have difficulty in climbing the stairs. Though it is treated as a mosque it doesn’t look like one. Congested location makes the visit all the more difficult. One can visit here only to cherish the history and the view from here.

    Must visit place to say you have been to Hyderabad
    We went there by Uber. The driver dropped us of at one end where there wereca number of jewelry shops and less pedestrians. The Charminar was in the middle of chaotic street sellers and tourists. Once we reached the entrance, less people were inside. Climbing up uneven staircase of 52 steps, I can view nice scenes of streets below.

    Beautiful: lights don’t go on every day.
    Had to come to Hyderabad for a conference and this was highly recommended. Beautiful building but the vicinity is really crowded as it’s very close to the bazaar. The weather in December is really nice though I’d caution to wear a mask and watch your belongings.

    Old world charm!
    Visit to this iconic structure in Hyderabad is a must for any tourist as one can get to know of the heritage of this place as also of the cultural cohesion. One can bargain for some nice souvenirs for family and friends. Food stalls and restaurants are also good.

    Charminar
    Apna Charminar is the landmark to identify Hyderabad. Bustling with local sellers selling bangles, clothes, souvenirs and tourists from all parts of India marvelling at the ancient structure. Crowded especially on weekends in evenings and nice to enjoy the Nizami vibes of old Hyderabad!

Good place to visit but it is a bit far from the stations. But the night view is also awesome and you can easily get a room nearby.
