While you are in Charminar, don’t forget to get the glimpse of the ‘Char Kamaan’ (the Four Arches), that were built three years after this grand complex was built. There is a huge square with a tank with an octagonal enclosure known as Gulzar Hauz. During the Shahi period, this Gulzar Hauz was the entrance to their palaces, which were later destroyed by the Mughals in 1687. Jamay Masjid is another nearest attraction situated to the northeast of the Charminar. This was built in 1598 by Muhammad Quli Qutub Shah, seven years after the massive Charminar was built. It was later renovated by Sikander Jah, the third Nizam of Hyderabad. All-in-all, as you walk around, you can get a glimpse of marvellous architectural style of the entire area, which has a blend of Indo-Persian and South Indian architecture while experiencing the royalty of the bygone golden era.
