Charminar was built at the centre of the city to commemorate the eradication of a deadly plague epidemic caused by Golconda`s water shortage.

The structure is a fine example of Indo-Islamic architecture with ample Persian influences. While arches and the domes show the influence of Islamic architecture, the minarets reflect Persian influence. The delicate stucco floral ornamentations on the ceiling, the balconies and the outside walls speak of Hindu influences.

There are 149 steps inside the minaret that vacationers can climb in order to get a spectacular view of Hyderabad. There are some really beautiful balconies on the first floor to the delight of a number of tourists.
