One is aware of the world-famous Charminar, Golconda Fort, and Chowmahallah Palace, which are tourist magnets. But if you are a hardcore Hyderabadi, then you must know about the following places that are conveniently overlooked by the citizens. Sudha Car Museum is one such place that is just a few kilometers away from the Nehru Zoological Park. The place has around 200 vintage cars on display, and some of the cars are quite amazing as they are inspired by everyday objects.
Among the many cars that Sudhakar has on display is a car resembling coronavirus. Then, there is another interesting one is a car akin to a condom that Sudhakar had created to raise awareness about HIV. Then there are others that resemble vegetables like aubergine or a handbag, lipstick, and a commode.
Khodhe Gutta is about 25 kilometers away from Hyderabad and has a beautiful viewpoint. The place is ideal for nature lovers as there is a huge boulder that overlooks the wide roadway. There is a quaint little Hanuman temple built on the boulders, and it has spiritual significance too. As there is no public transport or any food stalls around, you can turn into an ideal picnic spot.
The 15th century Bagh-E Naya Qila came to light during the diggings around the Naya Qila Bagh some five years ago. Though the Mughal-inspired garden is now unkempt, it has a pavilion that is designed to bring in a cool breeze. The air has to pass through a nearby fountain nestled amidst the wildly spread blooms.
Another interesting structure is the Nizamat Jung Memorial Library. The building resembles a lock, and the doorway is its key. The place has over 10,000 hand covers, leather-bound, and cloth-bound books. What is interesting to note is that the library has volumes of poetry and the history of everything that happened before the 1950s.
