History

File:Tomb of Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah in Hyderabad W IMG
Tomb of Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah near Golconda Fort in Hyderabad, India.

Archaeologists have found some Iron Age sites which tell that Hyderabad is 2500 years old. These sites have been found near Haythnagar and Ramoji Film City.[8] The sites had burials and a few tools which tell us about the ideas during Iron Age.[8] In 1143, Kakatiyas ruled Hyderabad from Golconda Fort. Later on, the city fell under Brahmani Sultanate. After the fall of the sultanate, the Qutub Shahi kings ruled Hyderabad. There were seven of them, whose burials are very near to the Golconda Fort.[9][10] Muhammad Quli Qutub Shah was a Qutub Shahi ruler who ordered the construction of the Charminar.[11] Nawab Abdul Hassan Shah who is popularly known as Tanisha was the last Qutub Shahi ruler of Hyderabad before Aurangzeb captured it in 1687.[12] Asaf Jah I was declared the governor of Hyderabad by Aurangzeb. He defeated a rival official to gain control over the country.[13] This is how the Asaf Jahi Dynasty began which ruled Hyderabad till 1948.[14]

Hyderabad became a princely state in 1947. Before that, it was under British rule. The Nizam rulers were willing to rule Hyderabad themselves wanted to join Pakistan. But soon the Nizam had to sign an Instrument of Accession to the Union of India so that Hyderabad becomes a part of India.[15] On November 1, 1956, the province of Hyderabad was divided into Karnataka, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh on the basis of language. So, Hyderabad came into the Telugu speaking community and thus became the capital of Andhra Pradesh.[16]

The city has now developed in fields of IT with four IT colleges including JNTU (Jawaharlal Nehru's Technological Institute).[17] The rise of International Airport and real estate has a major impact on the development of Hyderabad.[18]

Geography

File:Mecca
The Mecca Masjid

Hyderabad is situated at the Deccan Plateau, 500 meters above the sea level[19] and most of the area is rocky.[20] Paddy is the main crop grown and other crops include Bengal gram, groundnut, sugar cane and sunflower.[21] Hyderabad was found on the banks of Musi in 1591.[21] Today that area is known as old city where Mecca Masjid and Hussain Sagar Lake exist.[22] The area has many official buildings and that area is very old.[23] From the recent time, Hyderabad has been merged with Secunderabad. This has led a large, united and populous city with many villages surrounding it.[24]

Climate

Hyderabad has a wet and dry climate with monsoon or rainy season from late June to early October.[25][26][27] Hyderbad receives 32 inches of average rainfall every year.[28] The highest temperature ever recorded was 45.5 °C (113.9 °F) on 2 June 1966, while the lowest recorded temperature was 1.1 °C (43 °F) on 8 January 1946.[29][30] It is cooler in the evenings and mornings because of the city's elevation.[30]

Population

The city has a population of over four million.[31] Hindus form the majority[32] while Muslims are 40% of the population. The Muslim community of Hyderabad is largest in Andhra Pradesh.[33] Muslims are mainly located in and around the old city. Christians are small in number in the city. Famous Churches include those around Abids and Secunderabad like St. Josephs Cathedral.[34]

Language

Telugu, Urdu and Hindi are mainly spoken in Hyderabad.[35][36][37] English is also spoken among the educated people. The Telugu spoken here has a few words of Urdu mixed in it. Because Urdu is mixed with Telugu and Farsi, it gave rise to a new dialect, Hyderabadi Urdu. Telugu varies across the state but the language remains the same.[37]
