Perched high above the Banjara Hills neighbourhood and offering sweeping views of the city, Taj Krishna is one of the best luxury properties in Hyderabad.
The city now known as Hyderabad is really a tale of two towns: Hyderabad, which dates back several centuries and Secunderabad, set up by the British as a cantonment in the 19th century. Having been ruled for a long period by Muslim kings known as Nizams, Hyderabad benefits from a rich mix of cultures and languages.
The once prosperous kingdom of Hyderabad faded into oblivion for a while in the late 20th century, before rising from the ashes to become an Information Technology superstar. Ergo, there is now a third face to the city, the one known as “Cyberabad”.
Today, the city is dotted with glass and chrome buildings, a lively work ethic, and global cuisine cafes; and coexisting with this glitzy façade is the traditional side of the city, containing ancient monuments, local biryani joints, and a leisurely way of life.
