Hyderabad is the only southern Indian city where Islamic influences in architecture, history and culture predominate. It was under Muslim rule for centuries, and about 40% of the city's population is Muslim. Hyderabad is architecturally distinct from other Mughal-founded cities, and its unique atmosphere makes it an interesting city to explore. Wildlife, heritage, arts and crafts, and a plethora of mosques and temples combine to make this region a special place to visit.
Hyderabad has moved into the high-tech age with the development of HITEC City (Hyderabad Information Technology Engineering Consultancy City), a burgeoning technological park rivaling Bangalore, another booming Indian tech center. Many IT and multinational companies have opened offices there. The city also has a state-of-the-art convention center and a new international airport.
