One of the best temples of Hyderabad, located at the heart of the city but once we go inside, it is very calm, spiritual and divine. Visit in the evening, you can see the view of the city.

They have a counter where you have to deposit mobile and one token is issued to you. For delivery you just give back the token for getting back your mobile. It is safe and trouble free.

Dear tawde90, Namaste!! Your plan and itinerary are good; you can hire a car and driver for your whole tour – By car you can see all monuments There are so many travel agent, you can contact any one, better you can contact to tour operators or DE Members and get the quote from 2-4 of them for better quotation. Cheers!!
