Hyderabad is the capital of the Indian state of Telangana. With a population of about 6.7 million, it is the fourth most populous city in India.

Hyderabad was historically known as a pearl and diamond trading centre and many of the city's traditional bazaars remain open until today. The Old City of Hyderabad is one of India's most evocative ancient quarters and some of Islamic India's most impressive architecture looms over the Old City. The emergence of pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries in the 1990s led to the area's naming as India's "Genome Valley".
