Hyderabad and North Central Andhra Pradesh

Hyderabad, one of the poster boys for India's biotech and software boom, has emerged as a great place to soak up the atmosphere of the New India. It's also a city that heaves with history: splendid markets, mosques, architecture and museums and pearl bazaars. On the outskirts of the city are film-set theme parks, the grand medieval fortress of Golconda, and a collection of 17th-century tombs of old rulers lying in gardens of frilly bougainvillea. A day's drive to the southeast lies Nagarjunakonds, where the relocated ruins of one of India's richest Buddhist civilizations rise from the middle of an artificial lake.
