Life around Charminar during Ramadan in Old City Hyderabad

No matter how cosmopolitan Hyderabad has become, the Old City area retains its age-old charm that is unique. The Charminar is the heart of the Old City. Though the monument holds attraction of the place throughout the year, it is the Ramzan bazaar sprawling around the Mughal architecture Charminar that draws thousands of visitors in the holy month (Ramadan) of the year. The market beats with footfalls, buzzes with cacophony of hawkers, teems with makeshift shops, crawls with two wheelers, and gasps for air during Ramzan. All these create a thing of beauty just as seven different colors are blended into one color that is white. The Ramzan bazaar remains full of hustles and bustles till Eid. Indian Eagle presents a photo story of the life around the Charminar during Ramadan in Old City Hyderabad.
