GHR Hyderabad Run Routes

The GHR Hyderabad run routes will all start and finish at the Taramati Baradari - traversing many of the city's iconic heritage sites along the way. The run route is relatively flat and there are curved sections in a few parts - designed to fend off elephant attacks.

ABOUT HYDERABAD

Sure, Hyderabad’s old city is famous for its iconic heritage sites – but there is (and was) so much more intangible heritage associated with the city.

Golconda's Glittering Past

Lying on the important trade route between the port town of Masulipatam and the hinterland, Golconda rose to prominence in the international market for its diamonds. It came to be known for its great wealth during the Renaissance and is still spoken with reverence among the deep pocketed, purist, diamond traders and collectors.

Ek Irani Chai Deo Zara?

The Persian diaspora in India can be traced back to the late 1800s when several Zoroastrians from Iran made their way across the Hindukush to India. The journey spanned around four countries and two continents. The main reason for their move is exemplified by Darwin’s theory of evolution. All they wanted to do was survive. And survive they did; through trade and commerce and through their prolific cafes.
