About Charminar

Charminar, built in 1591, is a very popular tourist destination of Hyderabad. Mohammed Quli Qutub built the beautiful mosque to honor Allah. Charminar (meaning four minarets) got its name from its four minarets that were possibly meant to honor the first four Islam caliphs. This squared shape monument has 4 graceful minarets in each of the corners. It has a mosque with 45 prayer spaces. The Charminar is in a square shape, with the four minarets in each of the corners. On the other hand, the minarets have four stories each with a carved ring. The monument also has 149 winding steps inside each minaret that gives a breathtaking view of the city. Charminar is a great example of Islamic architecture, characterized by the employment of minarets, arches, and domes to make a unified piece. Tourists are greatly fascinated by the architectural splendor inside the Charminar. The monument looks stunning when illuminated in the evenings.
