History of Hyderabad:
Hyderabad is the capital city of Telangana and located on the banks of Musi River. The city was established in 1591 by Muhammad Quli Qutub Shah, who was the fifth sultan of the Golkonda. The Qutub Shahi dynasty ruled over Hyderabad until 1687 when Aurangzeb, the Mughal emperor conquered it to make it a part of his empire. Asif Jah I, who was a viceroy appointed for Hyderabad by the Mughal Empire, declared his sovereignty over the place in 1724 and this gave impetus to the Asif Jahi dynasty, better known as the Nizams of Hyderabad.The princely state continued its existence through the colonial rule before acceding to the Indian Union in 1948. The city was the capital of Hyderabad state from 1948 until 1956.
