Hyderabad exudes the fragrance of History, Dr. Dharmendra Prasad, a Geographer by profession, who has a long association with Hyderabad, has studied this historic city and attempted to reveal its true personality. The study highlights, initially, the physical growth of the city since its foundation as the capital of the Medieval Kingdom of Golconda in the 16th century to its present status as metropolis of Andhra Pradesh. It then unfolds the varied architectural styles of its buildings dating back to pre-historic Qutb Shahi and Asaf Jahi periods reflecting synthesis of Iranian, Turkish, Mughal and Hindu art features. It deals with the diffusion of its communities and the role played by them in the socio-cultural and political life of Hyderabad city inter alia providing informed glimpse in the fascinating array of localities names which has been studied by the author historically and linguistically in their spatial dimension. Finally, it describes the different kinds of religious, social, cultural and educational institutions and explains their important role as the forums of the activities of people who lived in such a great city and developed a new culture called “Dakhni Culture”. The stress on cultural development of Hyderabad where the North and South have met, mixed and developed together, is a unique feature of this work. This well researched book, easy of understanding, would provide a stimulating reading to a large circle of readers.
