History Of Origin

Hyderabad was established on the banks of the River Musi. The city is home to the Charminar, Falaknuma Palace, Chowmallah Palace and Makkah house of worship, which lies on the southern bank of the stream. Hyderabad and Secunderabad are together identified to be dual cities, separated by the Husain Sagar (bound by the ‘Tank Bund’), a lake created throughout the time of patriarch Qutb monarch in 1562.

Ruled by the Qutub Shahis, the city contains a history of nearly four hundred years. Bhagyanagar (the capital town) was named once a royal known as Bhagyamati, who later as a result of the mate of Quli Qutub monarch became Hyder Mahal and therefore came to be called Hyderabad.

Hyderabad was based on the stream Musi 5 miles east of Golconda. The Qutb Shahi phratry based the dominion of Golconda, one among the 5 kingdoms that emerged once the divide of the Bahamani Kingdom. the Deccan for nearly 171 years was dominated by Qutub Shahis.

All the seven rulers were keen on learning and were nice builders. They contributed to the enlargement and development of Indo-Persian and Indo-Islamic literature and culture in Hyderabad. Throughout the Qutb Shahi reign, Golconda became one of the leading markets around the globe for diamonds, pearls and steel. The glory of the Golconda kingdom in 1687, once Aurangzeb captured Golconda from Abul Hasan Tana monarch, the last king of Golconda.

With the conquest of the Deccan and thus the South, Aurangzeb succeeded in increasing the Mughal Empire to cover the whole sub-continent. However, once he died in 1707, the Empire speedily declined to owe to its delusive policies. At that time, Mir Quamaruddin, the Governor of the Deccan, WHO command the title of Nizam-ul-Mulk Feroze Carl Gustav Jung Asif Jah, declared his independence from the Mughal decree in 1724. He, therefore, became the first Nizam and thus the start father of the Asif Jahi phratry.

In 1769, Nizam Ali Khan Asif Jah II shifted the capital from Aurangabad to Hyderabad. The seven Nizams of the Asif Jahi phratry dominated the Deccan for nearly 224 years. throughout this era, Persian, Urdu, Telugu, and Sanskritic languages at the same time we’re developing. Persian was the official language up to 1893 therefore Urdu up to 1948.

The rule of the seven Nizams saw the enlargement of Hyderabad culturally and economically. Hyderabad, underneath the Nizam’s, was the largest princely state. However, before long once, India gained independence, Hyderabad unified with the Union of India.
