There are some places that steal your mind and heart  because of those sense of history , scenic view of the place

Charminar which constructed at end of the fifteen century is a magnificent place located near Hyderabad city which calls old city. This structure is a one of highly noticed land mark in India. I would say popular next to Taj Mahal in Goa. 

Charminar name derives form Urdu which translated to  Four Pillers. Charminar is a structure which these eponymous pillars  are ornate minarets attached and supported by four grand arches.

Enough of history lesson , if you interested you can read them later , 

Chaminar look from distance
As Hyderabad is a city which has equal Hindu and Islam cultural influence with Mogul and Hindu kings rulers ,As later it wasted ruled by mainly Islam Moguls  you can see more influence of Persian and Mogul Architecture patterns. 

Charminar and surrounding area predominately based on Muslim society , People , Food and selling goods are show casing the same.

Once you get inside after paying entrance fee , you will get into a narrow staircase located inside pillar / Tower. After climbing around 400 steps you will get into the terrace. Which is having plenty of enough space to walk down .
