Hyderabad, the capital of Telangana, is alternatively famous as the City of Pearls. It is also very well known for the unique Hyderabadi Biryani and Haleem along with the best quality grapes and mangoes. It has an exotic history and a number of tourist attractions. It was the capital of the Nizam’s kingdom and the confluence of diverse languages and cultures have made this city a true representative of India's plurilingual and pluricultural ethos. It is one of the most happening places in India as far as the IT industry is concerned. Climate-wise also it is one of the best because abundant sunshine and the temperature between 20-30 degrees Celsius (68-86 degrees Fahrenheit), make its weather quite pleasant between July and March.
