Telangana is the newly formed state of India. After a request for separation from Andhra Pradesh in 2014, it was awarded a separate statehood and India saw the formation of its 29th state. Situated in South East India, Telangana is bordered by Karnataka on its South West, Maharashtra on its North West, Chattisgarh to the North and Andhra Pradesh to its South and East. Hyderabad currently serves as the joint capital to both the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Tourism is an emerging industry for this new state. The major crowd pleaser for this locality is Hyderabad. With a beautiful blend of two different cultures, this city has an enthralling history. It was ruled by the Qutb Shahi dynasty for almost a century before it came under the rule of Mughals. 1724 saw the rise of a new dynasty in the region, called the Nizams of Hyderabad. Charminar and Golconda fort are major tourist landmarks, the influence of Mughal architecture on which is clearly visible. The prominent Hyderabadi Biriyani stands as an evidence of the prevailing Mughalai culture till date.
The Hussain Sagar lake offers a pristine environment connecting the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. A 16 foot tall majestic Buddha statue stands tall at the centre. The Birla mandir and the Chowmahalla palace are not to be missed while in the Telangana locality.
Hyderabad has now become a technology hub, what with the establishments of various IT companies. The population is on a rise in the city, which in turn is affecting the traffic, making travel arduous. Two Wheelers are the fastest way to travel through the city. In order to cater to the ones not owning one, we at Wheelstreet offer bikes on rent. The choices range from Scooty to superbikes, and the process of rental is fairly simple.
Apart from Hyderabad and Secunderabad, Telangana also has many other attractions for tourists and travellers alike. The thousand pillar temple at Hanamakonda dedicated to the Hindu deity Shiva sees a lot of tourists visiting it. The Sita Ramachandra Swamy Temple, situated in Bhadrachalam, is another popular destination that pulls tourists to the locality.
Warangal is another area part of the Telangana locality that has the celebrated National Institute of Technology and Laknavaram lake, worth visiting.
