By Manoj Menon

The scenic city of Hyderabad is located on the banks of River Musi and emotes till date the grandeur of the Nizam's who once ruled here. It is believed that the city was born in the year 1591 when Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah of the famous Qutb Shahi dynasty made this place his capital. It was previously known as Bhaganagar but later on got the name Hyderabad.

The city has to its credit many monuments and structures of the bygone era that still stand here and provides grandeur to the place. Here is a pictorial guide of the lost beauty of Hyderabad.
