History[eedit | eedit soorce]

Establisht in 1591 bi Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah, Hyderabad remained under the rule of the Qutb Shahi dynasty for nearly a century afore the Mughals captured the region. In 1724, Mughal viceroy Asif Jah I declared his sovereignty an creatit his awn dynasty, kent as the Nizams o Hyderabad an aw. The Hyderabad State ultimately became a princely state durin Breetish rule, an remained so for 150 years, wi the ceety servin as its caipital. The ceety continued as caipital of a new Hyderabad State after joining the Union o Indie in 1948 and afore attaining its status as the focal point o Andhra Pradesh in 1956. Hyderabad became pairt o Telangana when the new state is carvit oot o Andhra Pradesh.

Relics o Qutb Shahi an Nizam rule remain visible the day, wi the Charminar—commissioned bi Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah hissel—comin tae seembolise Hyderabad. That legacy is evident in the ceety's distinctive cuisine an aw, which includes Hyderabadi biriyani an Hyderabadi haleem. The Qutb Shahis an Nizams establisht Hyderabad as a cultural hub, attractin men o letters frae different pairts o the warld. Hyderabad emergit as the foremaist centre o cultur in Indie wi the decline o the Mughal Empire in the mid-19t century, wi airtists migratin tae the ceety frae the rest o the Indie subcontinent. While Hyderabad is luisin its cultural preeminence, the day, due tae the Telugu film industrie, it is the kintra's seicont-lairgest producer ceety o motion picturs.
