|Charminar in Hyderabad, Telangana, India|
Something about its structure:
|One of the Minarets of Charminar|
To reach the upper floor of this monument one will have to go through a narrow passage which show a staircase. There are about 149 steps arranged in a irregular way. Well, this structure is made of limestone, granite and mortar. There are pulverized marble stones too, as guessed.
There are four arches which exudes of the grandeur of the past days. They rightly open into four, royal ancestral streets such as Laad Bazaar, Madina Building, Kotla Alijah, and Shalibanda.
Do you know there is a tunnel?
Well, it would be difficult to say whether there is a tunnel or not. But, if we believe what the legends say then it really exists. Legends say that there is a tunnel which connects this beautiful monument to the other famous historical place that is Golkonda Fort. Perhaps, the tunnel was created to make the escape easy. No one knows about the exact location of the tunnel. Or who knows whether it is really there or not?
