Hyderbad & friendship revisited

Re joining with your old friends is always a great thing to do.and that was the exact reason which was driving this one & an hidden agenda was also that we could get to meet our brother put up in hyderbad as well.it was a long time that we had actually went out any were and when one of our friend invited us to hyderbad we had no better reason to visit that place.Hyderbad is a night trip from bangalore and on friday evening we, a set of 4 school time friends along with my wife who also happens to be my classmate started out for hyderbad.we took the bangalore express @ around 6:30 pm and it reached kachiguda station in hyderbad the next day morning @ around 6:00.Our friend was there already waiting for us and he took us to his house.all five of us got fresh @ his place and by around 9:00 we hit the road to have a glimpse of hyderbad.
our 1st destination was the charminar and its surroundings.It was a nice feeling to visit the places you had once read in your history text books..charminar was a nice experience and we could spent some qulaity time in there.

After charminar we checked out surroundings and visited to some chuudii bazaar were the girl band with us spent time shopping.surprisingly enough my wife stayed out..guess she was going through recession hang over..
After shopping around for a while in charminar we wisited the near by mousque and then rushed to our next destination,essentially the chowmala palace.this again was the palace of the niazam,the palace was quite a feist to our eyes.

After chowmala we went to see the famous salar jng muauem which was again a excellent place to visit.There were many items collected by the nizam’s over the time which were on diplay and those really amazed us.Its was worth a visit and after spending some time there,It was time to grab some food and we rushed to a near by hotel.After finishing our lunch the next plan was to reach golkonda fort by 4:00 so that we could walk around the fort & then attend the light & sound show there.We reached golkonda on time and this was a amazing fort which had its due place in history.

To reach the top of the fort we had to climb around 400 steps and most of us were dead by the time we reached on the top.There was a small temple on the top of the fort & we had a nice darshan there.after that we relaxed for some time there and caught an excellent
view of the sun set.

Then it was the time for the light & sound show.This left us memerized as amithab’s voice took us through the glorious days of golkonda.The show lasted for about 1 hour and i would suggest each and every one putting hyderbad on their tour map not to miss this.

After the show we statred of to our brothers place near SR nagar and then retired.The next day plan was to visit Birla temple but then the heat in hyderbad had already done its damage on us and were bed ridden the next day.so we decided to drop the plan of Birla temple & take rest during the day time because we had to catch return train to bangalore that evening.The train was at 7:00 pm and we reached back bangalore on monday @ around 5:00 in the morning.It was over all a very short but sweet trip.and the best part of it was that we a bunch of classmates re united and spent quality time after a long time.

“True happiness consists not in the multitude of friends, but in their worth and choice.”
