Hyderabad is the capital of southern India's Telangana state. A major center
for the technology industry, it's home to many upscale restaurants and
shops. Its historic sites include Golconda Fort, a former diamond-trading
center that was once the Qutb Shahi dynastic capital. The Charminar, a
16th-century mosque whose 4 arches support towering minarets, is an old city
landmark near the long-standing Laad Bazaar.
Hyderabad was historically known as a pearl and diamond trading centre, and
it continues to be known as the City of Pearls. Many of the city's
traditional bazaars, including Laad Bazaar, Begum Bazaar and Sultan Bazaar,
have remained open for centuries. However, industrialisation throughout the
20th century attracted major Indian manufacturing, research and financial
institutions, including Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, the National
Geophysical Research Institute and the Centre for Cellular and Molecular
Biology. Special economic zones dedicated to information technology have
encouraged companies from across India and around the world to set up
operations and the emergence of pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries
in the 1990s led to the area's naming as India's "Genome Valley".
