Hyderabad is the Capital of Telangana State. It is the most famous city in India, with a population of 6.7 million. The town occupied 650 square kilometres. The city is situated on hilly terrain around artificial lakes. It is famous for the IT, biopharmaceutical, and Telugu film industries. Hyderabad hotels have an excellent tribute in the service of guests.
The city has a history of nearly 400 years. After Quli Qutab Shah seized power from the Bahamani kingdom in 1512, they established Golconda city and the Qutub Shahi dynasty. Lack of water felicity and epidemics like the plague caused Quli Qutub Shahi to find a new capital named Bhagyanagar beside the Mussi River. Bhagamathi, the wife of Quli Qutub shah, became Hyder Mahal, and thus, the city’s name changed from Bhagyanagar to Hyderabad.
The Qutb Shahis ruled for 171 years. All the rulers ruled the kingdom with good administration. They were good patrons of Art and Culture. They contributed to the growth of Indo-Persian and Indo-Islamic literature and culture in this city. The region was famous for marketing diamonds, pearls, steel for arms and printed fabric.
In 1687 Aurangzeb, the great Mughal ruler captured Golconda Fort from Abdul Hasan Shah, the last king of Golconda. After the complete conquest of Deccan, Aurangzeb shifted the capital from Hyderabad to Aurangabad.
In 1724 the Deccan Governor Mir Quamaruddin declared Independence from Mughal rule, became the first Nizam, and founded the ‘Asif Jahi Dynasty’.
In 1769, Nizam Alikhan shifted the capital again from Aurangabad to Hyderabad. The Asif Jahi dynasty ruled for nearly 224 years, from 1769 to 1948. Hyderabad led under the Nizam, the largest Princely state in India.
After India gained Independence, Indian Government took Police action in Hyderabad. Finally, the princely state became a part of Union India.
