Come with me for a walk through 500 years of #Hyderabad’s multi-cultural and multi-religious history. This is the Hussaini Alam Kaman which synonymous with the locality.
The kaman shares space with the Udasin Math whose history goes back to 1511 when Guru Nanak travelled through the #Deccan.
A short walk leads to the Hussaini Alam Ashoorkhana where the 10th day of Muharram is marked with piety and lamentation for the martyrdom of Hussain.
A few yards from the Ashoorkhana is this small temple.
You can have some deep fried snacks and jalebis here.
This is the Deccan Button Factory where gold and silver buttons were manufactured on an industrial scale for those who could afford them.
Yes. Beyond the showy cycle lanes we cycle to work. Still. And you can get them repaired here. Oh! The gentleman also dispenses a medicine for kidney stones.
I don’t know what was this. But the message is reassuring.
The kids still play marbles. A champion at work.
Students still study at the Jamia Nizamia set up in 1872. It is one of the oldest seminaries in the country.
#Hyderabad architectural tradition continues with this yet-to-be-inaugurated Shaik ul Islam Auditorium which tips it hat to the Osmania University’s Arts College building designed by Ernst Jasper.
We end the walk with this math. Soak it in. Hope you enjoyed our small walk in the lanes of the city of love and camaraderie.

Hyderabad is a boomtown that defies definition. It is a multi-cultural matrix where religious identity is incidental. It welcomes everyone. Let me take you on a visual tour of the city of love. Image
This is the Jham Singh Temple in Gudimalkapur. Built by a Hindu soldier with money filched from the Nizam, the ruler approved the temple and asked Jham Singh to build a masjid nearby. He did. Image
We speak many languages. Sometimes in one sentence in no particular order. Image
