Previously on Lifetime Travelmates Now we are in Hampi. We just found a bunch of Langurs. Hello, travel mates!
How are you doing? We are Hyekyong and Jordi and we are traveling around the world. Now, we are traveling in India and in today’s episode, we’re going to explore Hyderabad. On our first day in Hyderabad, we went to the old city, the historic center of Hyderabad. Even though Hyderabad is thriving as a hub of information technology, this area still has not lost its old charm. The old city contains many landmark buildings including the popular Charminar monument
and mosque. The Charminar was built in 1591 to commemorate the end of plague in the city. These days, the Charminar area with surrounding food, jewelry and clothes market is the tourism hotspot
and the heart of Hyderabad Muslim culture. We are in Charminar. It doesn’t feel much like India.
It feels more like an Arab country, right? And now we are going to find
one of the best places in Biryani. They say Hyderabad is the best place for Biryani. So we are gonna go and
try this best Biryani in Town. Let’s go! Madness~~~~~ This is… Madness~~~~~ Oh my god~~~~~ Oh my god! The road was so congested with rickshaws, motorbikes, cars and people crossing on the road. After walking through the madness, we finally arrived at the legendary Shadab hotel to try the best Mutton Biryani in Hyderabad. Some yogurt. Some chilli curries. So not too much spicy,
so little bit spicy. So tender, so soft. It’s very good. Then we have the Roghni Naan. It looks like pizza. It’s stuffed with some veggies.
Very nice! Qubani Ka Meetha. What is it? It’s an… apricot cream dessert? We came to visit this bakery. Our couchsurfing hosts recommended us to try this Irani chai and these cookies.
They say is one of the best. So we will try it from now! This one is the basic Osmania cookie. this one has dates inside. Good morning from Hyderabad! It’s a new day in the city.
And today we’re going to explore the tombs, the fort and some more surprises. After having the tasty dosa and idly,
we went to the Qutb Shahi Tombs. Since the complex was huge,
to save time and get more information,
we decided to take a guided tour. The Qutb Shahi tombs belong to the rulers of
the Qutb Shahi Dynasty. Seven of the nine Qutb Shahi rulers were buried here as well as members of the royal family and respected citizens from entertainers to doctors from 1543 A.D to 1672 A.D. In the center of each tomb is the stone coffin which overlies the actual burial vault in a crypt below. These are the corner pillars. One of the most interesting things about the tombs was how they were built in terms of transmitting sound. Hyekyong! Jordi? Can you hear me? yeah. Now we are… experimenting the… mobile communication. It’s like you have a speaker… inside you. Right? This is very strange. It’s amazing! So you can find here clear, just in the first arch, in the middle of the arch, Pineapple with banana. Pineapple with banana. Indo- Persian style. They have mix with the Indian and Persian style. You know pineapple for what? for welcome. Ah~ To us, everyone is going to die. So their turn is finished, so next is our turn. So whenever you are going to come here next time, Anytime. Welcome. Picture from here? The best view. We learned a lot from this tour and it was a great introduction of Hyderabad history. And after that, we went to the Golconda fort, the most popular landmark in Hyderabad. Now we are walking on stairs. Should we take a break here? Pretty impressive! It’s the largest film studio in the world. It’s only us around here!
