Hyderabad and Secuderabad are known as Twin Cities.
Hyderabad is the capital and the largest city of the State of Telangana and also the capital of the State of Andhra Pradesh till the next capital is determined. The place is rich with historic and urban structures. The city is also a home to the ‘Telugu Film Industry ‘or ‘Tollywood’, which is the second largest producer of motion pictures in India.
Secunderabad was founded in 1806 AD as a British cantonment; the city differs in major ways from the city of Hyderabad. The town developed under the direct rule of the British as opposed to the Nizam ruled princely state of Hyderabad. Secunderabad is also one of the largest cantonment areas of India. The town is distinct from the other places in Andhra Pradesh due to the majority of its population being Anglo-Indian and Parsis.
