About The Event

Paigah Tombs are undoubtedly regarded as the epitome of achievement in artistic finesse of architecture during the Nizams. With exquisitely fine work on the beautiful white marble ( brought from Makarana, the same quarry stone that was used in Taj Mahal), the tombs are definitely the most amazing destination in hyderabad that you might not have heard of. 

The walk will be followed by discussions over Sufi history of hyderabad over chai and samosa at an irani cafe close by.


We will be gathering at a streetside cafe/hotel called "Royal Sea" at 8:30am. Please make sure you reach the gathering point before 8:30am. The cafe is at the entrance of a street, right across the road from Owaisi Hospital in Santosh Nagar.
