South India's Mughal capital

Hyderabad, literally ‘the lion’s abode’ was south India’s contender to rival the Mughal splendor of Delhi, Agra and Fatehpuri Sikri. Hyderabad was a capital of the Nizam rulers, who mastered the art of creating artificial, cascade lakes from rainwater runoff – some of which still survive to-date, and was a splendid city of lakes and tanks and later a diamond and pearl trading centre. Of the Mughal empires legacies, the most famous today is the cuisine – Hyderabad offers a mouth-watering array of regal specialties from biryani to kebabs, and a riot of meat preparations tempered with spices.
