Streets of Hyderabad: A Photo Journey

October 2, 2015

My trip to India was super quick, yet didn’t fall short of Incredible. I dont remember the last time I visited a new place for only 4 days, but sometimes, all you need is one day to experience an adventure of a lifetime. I was graciously invited by my fellow foodie friend and bride Arva from I live in a frying pan to attend her wedding.

I may dedicate a post on the breathtaking culture of Indian weddings, but this time, I want to reveal the other side of Hyderabad that mezmerised me. The Streets!

I can’t begin describe how captivating and engaging the streets of Hyderabad are. A whole world on their own! From the hustle and bustle of honking cars, speedy rickshaws to the cart vendors who manage to make a living out of selling anything and everything, to the food stalls of fragrant sweet chai, crispy golden samsosas and guava sellers. As overwhelming as it may seem, one just can’t get enough of the action.

I shall say no more and let the pictures speak for themselves.

  • I have half a post and hundreds of photos from that short trip. The streets of Hyderabad were so fascinating. Lovely memories rekindled of that time.

    • I agree! for a 3 day trip, it really rocked my boat! and wish i stayed longer to experience the more upscale side of hyderabad like you did.
