Hyderabad
(/ˈhaɪdərəˌbɑːd/ ( listen) HY-dər-ə-bAHd; often /ˈhaɪdrəˌbɑːd/) is the capital of the Indian state of Telangana
Telangana
and de jure capital of Andhra Pradesh.[A] Occupying 650 square kilometres (250 sq mi) along the banks of the Musi River, it has a population of about 6.7 million and a metropolitan population of about 7.75 million, making it the fourth most populous city and sixth most populous urban agglomeration in India. At an average altitude of 542 metres (1,778 ft), much of Hyderabad
Hyderabad
is situated on hilly terrain around artificial lakes, including Hussain Sagar—predating the city's founding—north of the city centre. Established in 1591 by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah, Hyderabad
Hyderabad
remained under the rule of the Qutb Shahi dynasty
Qutb Shahi dynasty
for nearly a century before the Mughals captured the region. In 1724, Mughal viceroy Asif Jah I declared his sovereignty and created his own dynasty, known as the Nizams of Hyderabad. The Nizam's dominions became a princely state during the British Raj, and remained so for 150 years, with the city serving as its capital. The city continued as the capital of Hyderabad State after it was brought into the Indian Union
Indian Union
in 1948, and became the capital of Andhra Pradesh
Andhra Pradesh
after the States Reorganisation Act, 1956. Since 1956, Rashtrapati Nilayam

in the city has been the winter office of the President of India. In 2014, the newly formed state of Telangana
Telangana
split from Andhra Pradesh
Andhra Pradesh
and the city became the joint capital of the two states, a transitional arrangement scheduled to end by 2025. Relics of Qutb Shahi

as a cultural hub, attracting men of letters from different parts of the world. Hyderabad
Hyderabad
emerged as the foremost centre of culture in India

History[edit] Main article: History of Hyderabad Toponymy[edit] According to John Everett-Heath, the author of Oxford Concise Dictionary of World Place Names, Hyderabad
Hyderabad
means "Haydar's city" or "lion city", from haydar (lion) and ābād (city), and was named to honour the Caliph
Caliph
Ali Ibn Abi Talib, who was also known as Haydar because of his lion-like valour in battles.[2] Andrew Petersen, a scholar of Islamic architecture, says the city was originally called Baghnagar (city of gardens).[3] One popular theory suggests that the founder of the city, Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah
Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah
of the Golconda Sultanate, named it "Bhagyanagar" or "Bhāgnagar" after Bhagmati, a local nautch (dancing) girl with whom he had fallen in love. She converted to Islam
Islam
and adopted the title Hyder Mahal. The city was renamed Hyderabad
Hyderabad
in her honour.[4] According to German traveller Heinrich von Poser, whose travelogue of the Deccan was translated by Gita Dharampal-Frick of Heidelberg University, there were two names for the city: "On 3 December 1622, we reached the city of Bagneger or Hederabat, the seat of the king Sultan Mehemet Culi Cuttub Shah and the capital of the kingdom".[5] French traveller Jean de Thévenot
Jean de Thévenot
visited the Deccan region in 1666–1667 refers to the city in his book Travels in India
India
as "Bagnagar and Aiderabad".[5][6] Early and medieval history[edit] Archaeologists excavating near the city have unearthed Iron Age

sites that may date from 500 BCE.[7] The region comprising modern Hyderabad
Hyderabad
and its surroundings was known as Golkonda
Golkonda
(Golla Konda-"shepherd's hill"),[8] and was ruled by the Chalukya dynasty from 624 CE to 1075 CE.[9] Following the dissolution of the Chalukya empire into four parts in the 11th century, Golkonda
Golkonda
came under the control of the Kakatiya dynasty
Kakatiya dynasty
from 1158, whose seat of power was at Warangal, 148 km (92 mi) northeast of modern Hyderabad.[10]

The Kakatiya dynasty

was reduced to a vassal of the Khalji dynasty

in 1310 after its defeat by Sultan Alauddin Khalji

of the Delhi Sultanate. This lasted until 1321, when the Kakatiya dynasty

was annexed by Malik Kafur, Allaudin Khalji's general.[11] During this period, Alauddin Khalji
Alauddin Khalji
took the Koh-i-Noor

until 1347 when Ala-ud-Din Bahman Shah, a governor under bin Tughluq, rebelled against Delhi
Delhi
and established the Bahmani Sultanate
Bahmani Sultanate
in the Deccan Plateau, with Gulbarga, 200 km (124 mi) west of Hyderabad, as its capital. The Hyderabad
Hyderabad
area was under the control of the Musunuri Nayaks
Musunuri Nayaks
at this time, who, however, were forced to cede it to the Bahmani Sultanate
Bahmani Sultanate
in 1364. The Bahmani kings ruled the region until 1518 and were the first independent Muslim rulers of the Deccan.[13][14] Sultan Quli, a governor of Golkonda, revolted against the Bahmani Sultanate and established the Qutb Shahi dynasty
Qutb Shahi dynasty
in 1518;[10] he rebuilt the mud-fort of Golconda
Golconda
and named the city "Muhammad nagar".[15][16] The fifth sultan, Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah, established Hyderabad
Hyderabad
on the banks of the Musi River in 1591,[17] to avoid the water shortages experienced at Golkonda.[18] During his rule, he had the Charminar
Charminar
and Mecca Masjid
Mecca Masjid
built in the city.[19] On 21 September 1687, the Golkonda
Golkonda
Sultanate came under the rule of the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb
Aurangzeb
after a year-long siege of the Golkonda
Golkonda
fort.[20][21] The annexed city "Hyderabad" was renamed Darul Jihad (House of War),[22] whereas its state "Golconda" was renamed Deccan Suba (Deccan province) and the capital was moved from Golconda
Golconda
to Aurangabad, about 550 km (342 mi) northwest of Hyderabad.[20][23] Modern history[edit]

A mill with a canal connecting to Hussain Sagar

lake. Following the introduction of railways in the 1880s, factories were built around the lake.

In 1714 Farrukhsiyar, the Mughal emperor, appointed Asif Jah I
Asif Jah I
to be Viceroy of the Deccan, with the title Nizam-ul-Mulk (Administrator of the Realm).[24] In 1724, Asif Jah I
Asif Jah I
defeated Mubariz Khan to establish autonomy over the Deccan Suba, named the region Hyderabad
Hyderabad
Deccan, and started what came to be known as the Asif Jahi dynasty. Subsequent rulers retained the title Nizam ul-Mulk and were referred to as Asif Jahi Nizams, or Nizams of Hyderabad.[20][23] The death of Asif Jah I in 1748 resulted in a period of political unrest as his sons, backed by opportunistic neighbouring states and colonial foreign forces, contended for the throne. The accession of Asif Jah II, who reigned from 1762 to 1803, ended the instability. In 1768 he signed the treaty of Machilipatnam, surrendering the coastal region to the East India Company in return for a fixed annual rent.[25] In 1769 Hyderabad
Hyderabad
city became the formal capital of the Nizams.[20][23] In response to regular threats from Hyder Ali
Hyder Ali
(Dalwai of Mysore), Baji Rao I
Baji Rao I
( Peshwa
Peshwa
of the Maratha Empire), and Basalath Jung (Asif Jah II's elder brother, who was supported by the Marquis de Bussy-Castelnau), the Nizam signed a subsidiary alliance with the East India
India
Company in 1798, allowing the British Indian Army
British Indian Army
to occupy Bolarum
Bolarum
(modern Secunderabad) to protect the state's capital, for which the Nizams paid an annual maintenance to the British.[25] Until 1874 there were no modern industries in Hyderabad. With the introduction of railways in the 1880s, four factories were built to the south and east of Hussain Sagar
Hussain Sagar
Lake,[26] and during the early 20th century, Hyderabad
Hyderabad
was transformed into a modern city with the establishment of transport services, underground drainage, running water, electricity, telecommunications, universities, industries, and Begumpet
Begumpet
Airport. The Nizams ruled their princely state from Hyderabad during the British Raj.[20][23] After India
India
gained independence, the Nizam declared his intention to remain independent rather than become part of the Indian Union.[25] The Hyderabad State
Hyderabad State
Congress, with the support of the Indian National Congress and the Communist Party of India, began agitating against Nizam VII in 1948. On 17 September that year, the Indian Army
Indian Army
took control of Hyderabad State
Hyderabad State
after an invasion codenamed Operation Polo. With the defeat of his forces, Nizam VII capitulated to the Indian Union by signing an Instrument of Accession, which made him the Rajpramukh
Rajpramukh
(Princely Governor) of the state until 31 October 1956.[23][27] Between 1946 and 1951, the Communist Party of India
India
fomented the Telangana
Telangana
uprising against the feudal lords of the Telangana region.[28] The Constitution of India, which became effective on 26 January 1950, made Hyderabad State
Hyderabad State
one of the part B states of India, with Hyderabad
Hyderabad
city continuing to be the capital.[29] In his 1955 report Thoughts on Linguistic States, B. R. Ambedkar, then chairman of the Drafting Committee of the Indian Constitution, proposed designating the city of Hyderabad
Hyderabad
as the second capital of India because of its amenities and strategic central location.[30] Since 1956, the Rashtrapati Nilayam
Rashtrapati Nilayam
in Hyderabad
Hyderabad
has been the second official residence and business office of the President of India; the President stays once a year in winter and conducts official business particularly relating to Southern India.[31] On 1 November 1956 the states of India
India
were reorganised by language. Hyderabad
Hyderabad
state was split into three parts, which were merged with neighbouring states to form the modern states of Maharashtra, Karnataka
Karnataka
and Andhra Pradesh. The nine Telugu- and Urdu-speaking districts of Hyderabad State
Hyderabad State
in the Telangana
Telangana
region were merged with the Telugu-speaking Andhra State
Andhra State
to create Andhra Pradesh,[32][33][34] with Hyderabad
Hyderabad
as its capital. Several protests, known collectively as the Telangana
Telangana
movement, attempted to invalidate the merger and demanded the creation of a new Telangana
Telangana
state. Major actions took place in 1969 and 1972, and a third began in 2010.[35] The city suffered several explosions: one at Dilsukhnagar
Dilsukhnagar
in 2002 claimed two lives;[36] terrorist bombs in May and August 2007 caused communal tension and riots;[37] and two bombs exploded in February 2013.[38] On 30 July 2013 the government of India
India
declared that part of Andhra Pradesh would be split off to form a new Telangana
Telangana
state, and that Hyderabad
Hyderabad
city would be the capital city and part of Telangana, while the city would also remain the capital of Andhra Pradesh
Andhra Pradesh
for no more than ten years. On 3 October 2013 the Union Cabinet approved the proposal,[39] and in February 2014 both houses of Parliament passed the Telangana
Telangana
Bill. With the final assent of the President of India
India
in June 2014, Telangana
Telangana
state was formed.[40] Geography[edit] Main article: Geography of Hyderabad

Hyderabad's lakes and the sloping terrain of its low-lying hills provide habitat for an assortment of flora and fauna. As of 2016, the tree cover is 1.66% of total city area, a decrease from 2.71% in 1996.[59] The forest region in and around the city encompasses areas of ecological and biological importance, which are preserved in the form of national parks, zoos, mini-zoos and a wildlife sanctuary. Nehru Zoological Park, the city's one large zoo, is the first in India to have a lion and tiger safari park. Hyderabad
Hyderabad
has three national parks (Mrugavani National Park, Mahavir Harina Vanasthali National Park and Kasu Brahmananda Reddy National Park), and the Manjira Wildlife Sanctuary is about 50 km (31 mi) from the city. Hyderabad's other environmental reserves are: Kotla Vijayabhaskara Reddy Botanical Gardens, Shamirpet Lake, Hussain Sagar, Fox Sagar Lake, Mir Alam Tank and Patancheru

and there shall be a new capital for the State of Andhra Pradesh." The same sections also define that the common capital includes the existing area designated as the Greater Hyderabad
Hyderabad
Municipal Corporation under the Hyderabad
Hyderabad
Municipal Corporation Act, 1955. As stipulated in sections 3 and 18(1) of the Reorganisation Act, city MLAs are members of Telangana
Telangana
state assembly. Local government[edit] The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation
Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation
(GHMC) oversees the civic infrastructure of the city's 30 "circles", which together encompass 150 municipal wards.[63] Each ward is represented by a corporator, elected by popular vote. The corporators elect the Mayor, who is the titular head of GHMC; executive powers rest with the Municipal Commissioner, appointed by the state government. The GHMC carries out the city's infrastructural work such as building and maintenance of roads and drains, town planning including construction regulation, maintenance of municipal markets and parks, solid waste management, the issuing of birth and death certificates, the issuing of trade licences, collection of property tax, and community welfare services such as mother and child healthcare, and pre-school and non-formal education.[64] The GHMC was formed in April 2007 by merging the Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad
Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad
(MCH) with 12 municipalities of the Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy and Medak
Medak
districts covering a total area of 650 km2 (250 sq mi).[65]:3 In the 2016 municipal election, the Telangana

Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority
(HMDA). The HMDA is an apolitical urban planning agency that covers the GHMC and its suburbs, extending to 54 mandals in five districts encircling the city. It coordinates the development activities of GHMC and suburban municipalities and manages the administration of bodies such as the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB).[73] As the seat of the government of Telangana, Hyderabad
Hyderabad
is home to the state's legislature, secretariat and high court, as well as various local government agencies. The Lower City Civil Court and the Metropolitan Criminal Court are under the jurisdiction of the High Court.[74][75]:1 The GHMC area contains 24 State Legislative Assembly constituencies, which form five constituencies of the Lok Sabha
Lok Sabha
(the lower house of the Parliament of India).[76] Utility services[edit]

The HMWSSB regulates rainwater harvesting, sewerage services and water supply, which is sourced from several dams located in the suburbs. In 2005, the HMWSSB started operating a 116-kilometre-long (72 mi) water supply pipeline from Nagarjuna Sagar Dam
Nagarjuna Sagar Dam
to meet increasing demand.[77][78] The Telangana

Post has five head post offices and many sub-post offices in Hyderabad, which are complemented by private courier services.[45] Pollution control[edit] Hyderabad
Hyderabad
produces around 4,500 tonnes of solid waste daily, which is transported from collection units in Imlibun, Yousufguda and Lower Tank Bund to the dumpsite in Jawaharnagar.[81] Disposal is managed by the Integrated Solid Waste Management project which was started by the GHMC in 2010.[82] Rapid urbanisation and increased economic activity has also led to increased industrial waste, air, noise and water pollution, which is regulated by the Telangana Pollution Control Board (TPCB).[83][84] The contribution of different sources to air pollution in 2006 was: 20–50% from vehicles, 40–70% from a combination of vehicle discharge and road dust, 10–30% from industrial discharges and 3–10% from the burning of household rubbish.[85] Deaths resulting from atmospheric particulate matter are estimated at 1,700–3,000 each year.[86] Ground water
Ground water
around Hyderabad, which has a hardness of up to 1000 ppm, around three times higher than is desirable,[87] is the main source of drinking water but the increasing population and consequent increase in demand has led to a decline in not only ground water but also river and lake levels.[88][89] This shortage is further exacerbated by inadequately treated effluent discharged from industrial treatment plants polluting the water sources of the city.[90] Healthcare[edit] See also: Healthcare in Hyderabad

is the largest contributor to the gross domestic product (GDP), tax and other revenues, of Telangana, and the sixth largest deposit centre and fourth largest credit centre nationwide, as ranked by the Reserve Bank of India
India
(RBI) in June 2012.[139] Its per capita annual income in 2011 was ₹44,300 (US$680).[140] As of 2006[update], the largest employers in the city were the governments of Andhra Pradesh

Hyderabad
has a large informal economy that employs 30% of the labour force.[119]:71 According to a survey published in 2007, it had 40–50,000 street vendors, and their numbers were increasing.[163]:9 Among the street vendors, 84% are male and 16% female,[164]:12 and four fifths are "stationary vendors" operating from a fixed pitch, often with their own stall.[164]:15–16 Most are financed through personal savings; only 8% borrow from moneylenders.[164]:19 Vendor earnings vary from ₹50 (77¢ US) to ₹800 (US$12) per day.[163]:25 Other unorganised economic sectors include dairy, poultry farming, brick manufacturing, casual labour and domestic help. Those involved in the informal economy constitute a major portion of urban poor.[119]:71 Culture[edit] Main article: Culture of Hyderabad

Hyderabad
Hyderabad
emerged as the foremost centre of culture in India
India
with the decline of the Mughal Empire. After the fall of Delhi
Delhi
in 1857, the migration of performing artists to the city particularly from the north and west of the Indian sub continent, under the patronage of the Nizam, enriched the cultural milieu.[165][166] This migration resulted in a mingling of North and South Indian languages, cultures and religions, which has since led to a co-existence of Hindu and Muslim traditions, for which the city has become noted.[167][168]:viii A further consequence of this north–south mix is that both Telugu and Urdu
Urdu
are official languages of Telangana.[169] The mixing of religions has also resulted in many festivals being celebrated in Hyderabad
Hyderabad
such as Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali
Diwali
and Bonalu

of Hindu tradition and Eid ul-Fitr and Eid al-Adha
Eid al-Adha
by Muslims.[170] Traditional Hyderabadi garb also reveals a mix of Muslim and South Asian influences with men wearing sherwani and kurta–paijama and women wearing khara dupatta and salwar kameez.[171][172][173] Most Muslim women wear burqa and hijab outdoors.[174] In addition to the traditional Indian and Muslim garments, increasing exposure to western cultures has led to a rise in the wearing of western style clothing among youths.[175] Literature[edit] In the past, Qutb Shahi
Qutb Shahi
rulers and Nizams attracted artists, architects and men of letters from different parts of the world through patronage. The resulting ethnic mix popularised cultural events such as mushairas (poetic symposia).[176] The Qutb Shahi dynasty particularly encouraged the growth of Deccani
Deccani

literature leading to works such as the Deccani Masnavi and Diwan poetry, which are among the earliest available manuscripts in Urdu.[177] Lazzat Un Nisa, a book compiled in the 15th century at Qutb Shahi
Qutb Shahi
courts, contains erotic paintings with diagrams for secret medicines and stimulants in the eastern form of ancient sexual arts.[178] The reign of the Nizams saw many literary reforms and the introduction of Urdu as a language of court, administration and education.[179] In 1824, a collection of Urdu
Urdu
Ghazal

poetry, named Gulzar-e-Mahlaqa, authored by Mah Laqa Bai—the first female Urdu

has continued with these traditions in its annual Hyderabad Literary Festival, held since 2010, showcasing the city's literary and cultural creativity.[181] Organisations engaged in the advancement of literature include the Sahitya Akademi, the Urdu
Urdu
Academy, the Telugu Academy, the National Council for Promotion of Urdu
Urdu
Language, the Comparative Literature Association of India, and the Andhra Saraswata Parishad. Literary development is further aided by state institutions such as the State Central Library, the largest public library in the state which was established in 1891,[182] and other major libraries including the Sri Krishna Devaraya Andhra Bhasha Nilayam, the British Library and the Sundarayya Vignana Kendram.[183] Music and films[edit] South Indian music
South Indian music
and dances such as the Kuchipudi

and Bharatanatyam styles are popular in the Deccan region. As a result of their culture policies, North Indian music
North Indian music
and dance gained popularity during the rule of the Mughals and Nizams,[184] and it was also during their reign that it became a tradition among the nobility to associate themselves with tawaif (courtesans). These courtesans were revered as the epitome of etiquette and culture, and were appointed to teach singing, poetry and classical dance to many children of the aristocracy.[185] This gave rise to certain styles of court music, dance and poetry. Besides western and Indian popular music genres such as filmi music, the residents of Hyderabad
Hyderabad
play city-based marfa music, dholak ke geet (household songs based on local Folklore), and qawwali, especially at weddings, festivals and other celebratory events.[186][187] The state government organises the Golconda
Golconda
Music and Dance Festival, the Taramati Music Festival and the Premavathi Dance Festival to further encourage the development of music.[188] Although the city is not particularly noted for theatre and drama,[189] the state government promotes theatre with multiple programmes and festivals[190][191] in such venues as the Ravindra Bharati, Shilpakala Vedika
Shilpakala Vedika
and Lalithakala Thoranam. Although not a purely music oriented event, Numaish, a popular annual exhibition of local and national consumer products, does feature some musical performances.[192] The city is home to the Telugu film industry, popularly known as Tollywood[193] and as of 2012[update], produces the second largest number of films in India
India
behind Bollywood.[194] Films in the local Hyderabadi dialect are also produced and have been gaining popularity since 2005.[195] The city has also hosted international film festivals such as the International Children's Film Festival and the Hyderabad International Film Festival.[196] In 2005, Guinness World Records declared Ramoji Film City

Highly influenced by Mughal painting, this style makes use of bright colours and mostly depicts regional landscape, culture, costumes and jewellery.[198] Although not a centre for handicrafts itself, the patronage of the arts by the Mughals and Nizams attracted artisans from the region to Hyderabad. Such crafts include: Bidriware, a metalwork handicraft from neighbouring Karnataka, which was popularised during the 18th century and has since been granted a Geographical Indication (GI) tag under the auspices of the WTO

The most commonly used forms of medium distance transport in Hyderabad include government owned services such as light railways and buses, as well as privately operated taxis and auto rickshaws.[248] Bus services operate from the Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station
Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station
in the city centre[249] and carry over 130 million passengers daily across the entire network.[250]:76 Hyderabad's light rail transportation system, the Multi-Modal Transport System (MMTS), is a three line suburban rail service used by over 160,000 passengers daily.[251] Complementing these government services are minibus routes operated by Setwin (Society for Employment Promotion & Training in Twin Cities).[252] Intercity rail services also operate from Hyderabad; the main, and largest, station is Secunderabad

Hyderabad
Metro, a new rapid transit system, was opened on 29 November 2017.[254] As of 2012[update], there are over 3.5 million vehicles operating in the city, of which 74% are two-wheelers, 15% cars and 3% three-wheelers. The remaining 8% include buses, goods vehicles and taxis.[255] The large number of vehicles coupled with relatively low road coverage—roads occupy only 9.5% of the total city area[67]:79—has led to widespread traffic congestion[256] especially since 80% of passengers and 60% of freight are transported by road.[257]:3 The Inner Ring Road, the Outer Ring Road, the Hyderabad Elevated Expressway, the longest flyover in India,[258] and various interchanges, overpasses and underpasses were built to ease the congestion. Maximum speed limits within the city are 50 km/h (31 mph) for two-wheelers and cars, 35 km/h (22 mph) for auto rickshaws and 40 km/h (25 mph) for light commercial vehicles and buses.[259] Hyderabad

Rajiv Gandhi International Airport
(RGIA) (IATA: HYD, ICAO: VOHS) in 2008,[261] with the capacity of handling 12 million passengers and 100,000 tonnes of cargo per annum.[262] In 2011, Airports Council International, an autonomous body representing the world's airports, judged RGIA the world's best airport in the 5–15 million passenger category and the world's fifth best airport for service quality.[263] See also[edit]
