The Charminar, Hyderabad

It’s the stuff of fables.

An icon of the exotic east.

It’s also chaos. A seeming must have for all old cities. Typical of life that jostles in them.

The colours, the sounds and the smells…

The fabulously rich Nizams of Hyderabad

The Qutub Shahi rulers who built this oddly structured mosque

A sunset quietly lighting up the sky. Struggling to keep a balance with the bright shop lights

The much awaited call for the last namaz

After that, since this was the month of Ramzan … there will be a hearty meal.
