Culture of hyderabad

Hyderabadi culture is also known as ‘deccani tehzeeb’. It is the result of a large number of Muslim dynasties that ruled the city in the past. A blend of Hindu and Muslim traditions add to the unique culture of Hyderabad. The former rulers contributed to the arts, literature and architecture. Classical Indian music and Kathak dance are popular in the city and are performed at several cultural events held every year. Hyderabadis celebrate their festivals enthusiastically. The festival of Eid is supplemented by vibrant markets in the old city, selling beautiful handicrafts, Hyderabadi Biryani and Hyderabadi Haleem in particular. The Hindu festival of Ganesh Chaturthi is also celebrated ardently, when people flock to lakes such as Hussain Sagar for ‘visarjan’. Other festivals celebrated in the city are Diwali, Holi, Bonalu, Ugadi, etc. Apart from pearl and diamond jewellery, metal handicrafts such as Bidri ware, an art that dates back to the sixteenth century, is popular in Hyderabad. A type of 3000-year-old hand-painted/block printed, cotton textile art called ‘Kalamkari’, is still in use in Hyderabad. Pochampalli silk sarees, from Telangana, are extensively sold in the city.
