Pretty Sure This Qualifies as The Noisiest: The Charminar in Hyderabad, India

Was walking around the area and heard a huge influx of indistinct conversations from people who aren’t exactly from around here. For most, this isn’t music to their ears, but mere noises. For me, it’s art, music, and literature! Crazy, weekday? You bet!

In any case, was just trying to relate it to the time I realized how much these kinds of day-to-day ordinary ways of life is as important as travel experiences and landmarks. These are the things that shape our culture, our society, day-to-day and bit-by-bit.

Which brings me to, the 1591 structure, which you might know about – the Charminar in Hyderabad. It’s the landmark that has become a global icon of Hyderabad, listed among the most recognized structures of India… but, it’s also one of the NOISIEST places you’ll ever encounter in your lifetime. From people, to inanimate things, to animals – everywhere and everything is as noisy as they can be.

So noisy, so busy, so day-to-day ordinary way of life kind of adventure, that you’ll be surprised that the fact still remains: the Charminar in Hyderabad is still a stand out despite everything. These Indian talks and walks add flavor to the landmark. The view and surroundings are the ones that you would imagine if you’ll think of India. The monument overlooks another grand mosque called the Makkah Masjid. Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah, some thriving market exists around the area, with a close to 14,000 (!!!) shops during peak seasons. If you want to experience India the raw and real way, the Charminar in Hyderabad is the best place to start.

Street party woot!
