From there we boarded a Pushpak bus to Secretariat. The trip on the expressway was quick & we managed to reach Secretariat & checked into Amrutha Castle.

Check this link for a detailed review of the hotel:

We first headed to the Charminar, one monument not be missed. This is also a city very famous for its pearls & we managed to purchase some at the lulu pearl centre. The Mecca Masjid, Chowmahalla Palace are in close proximity to this place. This area has houses lots of shops & is part of the old city area. Traffic is something that needs you need to aware of especially on weekend. This needs to be planned. Nimrah cafe also definitely demands a visit & the combo of Irani chai + Salt biscuits (hot, straight from the oven) is so delicious. We also purchased a few boxes for home.

We then proceeded to visit the Jagannath temple in Banjara hills. This temple has been modeled after the Puri temple & is such an architectural beauty. The atmosphere out there is very good & we had a great time. The surrounding area is quite posh & houses the bungalows of quite a few famous celebrities.

After that we proceeded to Peddamma temple & we enjoyed the ambience there too. A very powerful deity. They have a tricky practice there that if you manage to keep a 1 rupee coin straight, apparently our wish comes true. I managed to keep one straight after 15 minutes.

After that we visited the famous shilparamam cultural center. This area houses quite a few places where you can shop and their almost near life-like statues is such a great work of art & leaves us spellbound.

As per my friends suggestion we then proceeded to have dinner at the famous food truck. This is situated in a open plot opposite to shilparamam centre. They serve out such delicious dosas & I tried the famous Palikaram dosa. It was so delicious. From What I heard Mushroom cheese dosa is also very famous.
