Flights to Hyderabad
Fly direct to Hyderabad – from Urdu, the ‘lion’s abode’ – from London and discover a city that trades on its historic past as well as a forward-looking future.
Now the pharmaceutical and high-tech centre of India, its IT-savvy financial centre towers over the gems of its past, its buzzing bazaars and many Islamic and Hindu monuments. Many of the city’s antiquities can be seen in the Salar Jung Museum, while a dose of modern culture can be found in its Tollywood film studios (home to the Telugu language equivalent of Mumbai’s Bollywood). Capital of Andhra Pradesh, the city is also home to the spectacular Golkonda fort with its 10km of battlements and unusual acoustics – the sound of a person clapping at the entry gate can be heard at its highest point a kilometre away.
