Hyderabad is the result of the marriage between old and new. Travelers will love the old world charms of Hyderabad, what with its monuments and colonial palaces. At the same time, Hyderabad also shows a modern side that many have come to laud as one of the most advanced in India, and is evident by its other name - “Cyberabad”.

during hot seasons can reach up to 45 degrees and while
Hyderabad does not experience extreme winter, you should
bring along warm clothing to prepare for temperature as cold
as 13 degrees.
