A slice of life in the Old City of Hyderabad: Random captures

The charm of the old city in Hyderabad is truly inimitable; the crowded markets, heritage buildings and the hustle bustle of the place never cease to fascinate me.

While I have posted earlier about this amazing place which includes the iconic Charminar, below are some more captures that I took on a recent visit to the city.  Here’s a glimpse of “a day in the life” of the old city.
