Hyderabad is made up of many neighbourhoods. Here you can find out about some of the more popular ones. As well, you can find out about Secunderabad, the twin city right next to Hyderabad.
|Located six miles northeast of Hyderabad, Secunderabad is often called the twin of Hyderabad; both are usually popularly referred as “Twin Cities”, although the name Secunderabad is rarely used outside of both. Its history runs parallel to that of Hyderabad, with some scholars claiming that its origin was technically established back to the time when Hyderabad was also formed. Hussain Sagar, a manmade lake built by the Qutub Shahis during the 16th century, separates Secunderabad from Hyderabad, and both cities shared the same airport until early 2008. In spite of the close connections between the two, though, both cities have a different fusion of cultures, with Secunderabad having fully developed under a direct British rule while Hyderabad has been a princely state since its inception.
