The story of this spectacular city would be incomplete without the mention of its flavoursome food.

Some of the most loved food items are, Hyderabadi Biryani, ‘Haleem’, ‘Irani Chai’, ‘Double Ka Meetha’, ‘Naancut Biscuits’, ‘Lukhmi’, ‘Mirchi Ka Salan’ and much more. Not just this, you will also find a tasteful blend of Nawabi, Mughal and Andhra cuisine here.
Hyderabad also has the famous Ramoji Film City where one of the biggest film festivals of India, The Busan Film Festival, is hosted. It wouldn’t be wrong to call Tollywood the entertainment lifeline of the entire Andhra Pradesh. Founded by B.N. Reddy and Narayana Swamy, Hyderabad is also home to “Tollywood”, the renowned Telugu Film Industry. This industry holds a Guinness World Record for being the largest in the world in terms of architecture. It also has an association with the Motions Picture Association of America.
