South Zone - Hyderabad


All though I am from Bangalore but if a city is to be chosen with respect to Drive, Design and Connect then Hyderabad is my choice.  It is the fourth most populous city and the fifth-largest contributor city to India's overall GDP. The city has a huge cultural heritage and is famous for pearls and Hyderabadi Biriyani.

The city has a very good network of roads and has an advantageous connection with major national highways. Here is the picture showing the network of roads across the city that connects every pocket of the city with the city's Ring road.



Hyderabad is an example of design and infrastructure planning. It has a blend of historical monuments like the Charminar and Golconda Fort and modern infrastructure in the form of IT park, the high tech city.This city has some of the finest food joints of our country. The Pista House and Shah Ghouse is undoubtedly a mystic treat to taste buds.

Hyderabad is famous for its street food that has an amalgamation of Mughul and Dravidian style of cooking.  The Eat street adjacent to Hussain Sagar is city's pride and a perfect place to hang around. Hyderabad is incomplete without Irani tea and Osmania biscuits and evenings have a close affair with munching chicken Shawarma. It is a heaven for food lovers. The city has swanky malls and exclusive showrooms to address people's brand loyalty. The Charminar market is famous for Pearl jewelry and finds customers world wide. Abids is another shopping destination for young and dandy. The Ramoji Film  City is another tourist destination built on the outskirts of city.        
         After Bangalore, Hyderabad has been dubbed as the Silicon Valley of India, mainly in light of the fact that more and more firms have set up their operations here. Starting in the 1990s, software companies, business process outsourcing (BPO) firms, call centers, and other technological services were set up, making it the center for all call center operations, technological development, and KPOs in all of India.

The city has plenty of locations to choose as weekend getaways. The city is surrounded by lots of tourist destinations. There are innumerable options if you wish to spend your weekends rolling on the wheels. Warangal, Bidar and Mahabubnagar are within 200 km range and has smooth drive that passes through boulevard of intoxicating nature. The drive is simply a bliss. Andhari Tiger Reserve, Chandrapur is 430 km away from Hyderabad and is famous with Tiger lovers and wild life Photographers.


                       Hyderabad sits at the junction of three National Highways linking it to six other states: NH-7 runs 2,369 km from Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, in the north to Kanyakumari,Tamil Nadu, in the south; NH-9, runs 841 km east-west between Machilipatnam, Andhra Pradesh, and Pune, Maharashtra; and the 280 km NH-163 links Hyderabad to Bhopalpatnam, Chhattisgarh. Five state highways, SH-1, SH-2, SH-4, SH-5 and SH-6, either start from, or pass through, Hyderabad. Its arch rival city and silicon capital of India, Bangalore is a smooth drive of 570 km through AH 43. It also has daily direct trains to Bangalore. 


Hyderabad in true sense epitomizes the spirit of Drive, Design and Connect and hence my favorite city for The #madeofgreat Zonal War
