Created with lime mortar and granite, it is classic example of Indo-Arabian architecture. In fact, this is the monument that has come to symbolize the city of Hyderabad. It is not surprising to hear others exclaim, “Oh, Charminar” at the mention of the historic city of Hyderabad. It is almost synonymous with Hyderabad city.
