CHARMINAR

The Charminar - "four minarets", constructed in 1591, is a monument and mosque located in Hyderabad, India. The landmark has become known globally as a symbol of Hyderabad and is listed among the most recognized structures in India. The fifth ruler of the Qutb Shahi dynasty, Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah, built the Charminar in 1591 after shifting his capital from Golkonda to the newly formed city of Hyderabad. The Charminar's long history includes the existence of a mosque on its top floor for more than 400 years. While both historically and religiously significant, it is also known for its popular and busy local markets surrounding the structure, and has become one of the most frequented tourist attractions in Hyderabad.

 

“The regality of love is everywhere”, said Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah (1565 – 1612)
