It has a parallel history with the city of Hyderabad and uses the very same airport. However, Secunderabad was largely under British rule, so this city now has some interesting cultural differences. Be sure to visit one of the many stunning temples while in the city and marvel at the architecture of St Mary’s Basilica.
